One focus of the HL7 Da Vinci Project FHIR accelerator has been member attribution lists used by payers and providers for implementing value-based contracts, care gap closures and quality reporting. MultiCare Connected Care (MCC), an accountable care organization in Washington State, recently deployed a FHIR-based application programming interface (API) to help solve the attribution issue.
MCC is an ACO established in 2014 as a wholly owned subsidiary of MultiCare Health System and operates as an independent entity. Under this entity, 350,000 lives are served within 30 value-based contracts.
MCC teamed with Opala, a Seattle-based healthcare data exchange solutions provider, on its Attribution API, which works to streamlines delivery of value-based care to patients in a way that yields administrative efficiency and improves reimbursement for providers.
