United States Health Information Knowledgebase (USHIK) A Data Registry Project 18 January 2000
2 Purpose of Briefing Provide Status of Data Registry Project –United States Health Information Knowledge Review –Goal –Approach –Today’s Situation –Data Registry Overview –Some Examples –Point of Contact
18 January Data Registry Project Goal Build, populate, demonstrate, and make available for general use a data registry to assist in cataloging and harmonizing data elements across multi-organizations. Utilize selected Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) data elements for demonstration.
18 January Data Registry Approach Collaborative effort –Department of Defense (DoD) - Health Affairs (HA) and Department of Health and Human Services - Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) funded and controlled –Members of requirements team include representatives from Department of Veteran Affairs, Health Level Seven, Department of Health and Human Services - Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), and Department of Defense - Health Affairs (HA) –Builds on Environment Protection Agency and Australian Institute of Health and Welfare implementations –Utilizes DoD - Health Affairs’ Health Information Resource Service (HIRS) to develop and implement data registry Establish data registry based on International and National Standards –ISO/IEC Specification and Standardization of Data Elements –ANSI X3.285 Metamodel for the Management of Shareable Data standards Load Health Industry Standards –Department of Health and Human Services - Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) to load data selected Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) related data into data registry Accredited Standards Committee, Health Care Task Group (X12) Health Level Seven (HL7) National Council of Prescription Drug Program (NCPDP) National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS)
18 January Today’s Situation (i) HCFA and DoD have developed the USHIK to demonstrate the use of a data registry that: –Focuses on Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) data. –Contains data definitions from X12, HL7, and NCPDP. –Functions based on ISO/IEC metadata standard –Utilizes the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) high level information model to facilitate grouping of data definitions. USHIK is available for review at:
18 January Today’s Situation (ii) Current HL7 and X12 information refreshed –HL7 to Reference Information Model Version 3.0 release 0.92 –X12 to May 1999 “Final Document” information DoD and HCFA are populating Agency versions of USHIK for internal use. Department of Veteran Affairs is using parts of USHIK for its internal data registry. HCFA is collaborating on the development of a terminological analysis software capability with Angelo Rossi Mori and Fabrizio Consorti of ITBM-CNR and University LA Sepienza, Roma, Italy.
18 January Today’s Situation (iii) HCFA has offered to support operation of the USHIK by Health Informatics Standards Board (HISB) for one year in order for HISB and Standards Development Organizations to utilize and evaluate data registry benefits. Standards Development Organizations as of 27 October –American Society For Testing and Materials (ASTM) – will participate. –National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) – will participate. –Health Level 7 (HL7) – will participate. –Accredited Standards Committee X 12 (X12) – is considering participating. –American Dental Association (ADA) – is considering participating. HCFA will (1) load SDOs current data element information into USHIK, (2) perform the initial mapped of the data elements to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare Model, and (3) develop a list of policy issues to be addressed by HISB and the SDOs.

Where are data elements defined? Codes can be downloaded for use in applications. A data registry is a place to keep facts about characteristics of data that are necessary to clearly describe, inventory, analyze, and classify data. A data registry supports data sharing with cross-system and cross-organization descriptions of common units of data. A data registry assists users of shared data to have a common understanding of a unit of data’s meaning, representation, and identification.
