Power of Data now unleashed by CMS pilot program: Data at the Point of Care (DPC)

On July 30, 2019, CMS announced the Data at the Point of Care (DPC) pilot program. DPC will give clinicians that are participating in the pilot program access to claims data. Per CMS:

“The claims data will fill in information gaps for clinicians, giving them a more structured and complete patient history with information like previous diagnoses, past procedures, and medication lists. Blue Button 2.0 has provided better access to this data for patients but now CMS is going a step further and helping to connect clinicians to their patients’ information. Clinicians will be able to access the DPC pilot data directly within their workflow, without needing to log into another application. This in turn will reduce burden in the exam room and give clinicians more time to deliver high quality care for their patients.”

Blue Button 2.0, has provided better access to this data for patients; however, now CMS is going further by helping to connect clinicians to their patients’ information. Clinicians will be able to access the DPC pilot data directly within their workflow, not needing to log into another application. This will reduce the burden during the assessment and give clinicians more time to deliver high-quality care for their patients.

Clinicians who are interested in participating in the DPC pilot program can sign up by visiting: https://dpc.cms.gov.

Beneficiaries who wish to opt out of data sharing can do so by calling 1-800-Medicare.
