Design principles, key categories and governance proposal for the Open Specifications
Specifications here refer to the blueprint of each aspect of the envisioned claims data exchange. In this context, the specifications can be thought of as a collection of minimal requirements and definitions which helps participants on the claims data exchange to -
- Co-exist and inter-operate correctly with each other (e.g. Provider/Payor/Sponsor, HCX1/HCX2)
- Speed up time to go live for the new data exchange use cases
- Define and meet the necessary regulations/policies
- Allow participants the choice of technology/solutions
In order to foster collaborative work while still maintaining consistency, envisioned specifications should adhere to key design principles defined in the next section.
