HL7 FHIR Implementation Guide: minimal Common Oncology Data Elements (mCODE) Release 1 - US Realm

DESCRIPTION

mCODE™ —short for Minimal Common Oncology Data Elements—is an initiative intended to assemble a core set of structured data elements for oncology electronic health records (EHRs).

The goal of the mCODE FHIR Implementation Guide (IG) is to facilitate cancer data interoperability and improve overall cancer data quality for patient care and research by establishing a set of elements that would form the basic data that would populate all EHRs for patients with cancer.

ALTERNATIVE NAMES

HL7 FHIR Implementation Guide: minimal Common Oncology Data Elements (mCODE) Release 1 - US Realm may also go by the following names or acronyms:

"HL7 FHIR® IG: Minimal Common Oncology Data Elements (mCODE), R1 - US Realm", , mCODE

IMPLEMENTATIONS/CASE STUDIES

The following organizations are in the process of piloting portions of the mCODE FHIR IG specification in its balloted form:

  • Dana Farber Cancer Institute
  • St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor
  • Intermountain Healthcare
  • Univ of Pennsylvania Medical Center

The following organizations participated in testing mCODE at the September 2019 FHIR Connectathon:

  • MITRE
  • CIBMTR
  • Penrad
  • Varian
  • Cancer Care Ontario (CCO)
  • MOLIT Institute
  • Flatiron Health
  • CSIRO

 

DEVELOPMENT BACKGROUND

This Implementation Guide is based upon the prior work from the published US Core R4 and the Clinical Genomics Reporting STU1 FHIR IGs.

This Implementation Guide is supported by the CodeX FHIR Accelerator, whose aim is to accelerate the adoption of Health Level Seven International Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (HL7® FHIR®) as the standard to further cancer data interoperability across communities.

As an HL7 FHIR Implementation Guide, changes to this specification are managed by Clinical Interoperability Council (CIC) working group and are incorporated as part of the standard balloting process.
