Introduction

This implementation guide describes the CARIN for Blue Button® [*] Framework and Common Payer Consumer Data Set (CPCDS), providing a set of resources that payers can display to consumers via a FHIR API. See the Table of Contents for more information.

Log of Continuous Integration Build Changes

  • Interim Version 0.1.7 - October 19, 2020
    1. Please post comments to the CarinBB zulip stream.
    2. Updated examples with pseudo-FSH annotations. Added easier to read examples page.
    3. Added easier to read search parameter page.
    4. Added implementation notes for all profiles
    5. Added invariant on Practitioner requiring NPI or Tax ID
  • Interim Version 0.1.6 - October 14, 2020
    1. Updates to MS and cardinality of various fields in EOB profiles and Patient profile. Note that some supportingInfo slices now have cardinality 1..1.
    2. Removed: "The inoutnetwork slice of total is now incorporated into supportingInfo, where it is a better fit." This was a misunderstanding.
    3. The graphic comparing non-EOB profiles has been updated
    4. Correction to slicing of Patient.identifier that lead to weird rendering issue in IG Publisher
    5. The short descriptions on all CPCDS-related fields/slices have been updated
  • Interim Version 0.1.5 - October 9, 2020
    1. Updates to MS and cardinality of various fields in EOB profiles and Patient profile. Note that some supportingInfo slices now have cardinality 1..1.
    2. The inoutnetwork slice of total is now incorporated into supportingInfo, where it is a better fit. This change may not be complete.
    3. Correction to slicing of Organization.identifier that lead to weird rendering issue in IG Publisher
    4. Correction to slicing of item.adjudication in EOB profiles. All slicing definitions are now consistent across these profiles.
    5. Examples for all profiles. Remaining validation errors are due to HL7 terminology issues, not with the examples.
  • Interim Version 0.1.4 - October 7, 2020
    1. Updated all invariants.
    2. Updated C4BB Codesystems, ValueSets and Codesystem Stubs. Minor changes to content of C4BB (locally defined) codesystems, and changes to the defining URLs of external codesystems.
    3. < li>Examples for all profiles. Remaining validation errors are due to HL7 terminology issues, not with the examples.</li>
    4. Added description of PDex to to the background material.
  • Interim Version 0.1.3 - September 8, 2020
    1. Pat's updates to CodeSystem stubs and Codesystems/Valuesets
    2. Updates to Graphics
    3. Changed references to CARIN-BB to C4BB, including profile, codesystem, and valueset names
    4. Changed naming convention for releases to Release.Ballot.Version.
  • Interim Version 0.1.2 - August 28, 2020
    1. Update to EOBComparisonv17 from Pat, still in draft form.
    2. Created Codesystem stubs for all key external codesystems referenced by IG, along with corresponding ValueSets
    3. Further corrections to capability statement based on Igor comments. supported_profiles vs profiles still deferred.
    4. Resolved all but a handful of remaining comments relating to BV1, BV2, BV2a, BV4, BV6

The CARIN Consumer Directed Payer Data Exchange Implementation Guide is also known as the CARIN IG for Blue Button® Implementation Guide. This IG was developed using FHIR Shorthand syntax and the SUSHI tookit, a free, open source toolchain from the MITRE Corporation. Valuable guidance on FSH and FHIR slicing was provided by Chris Moesel. The capability statements were developed with tools and valuable guidance from Eric Haas.
