specifications at § 170.204(b)(1) or (2); and
(ii) By any means other than the method specified in paragraph (a)(15)(i) of this section.
Below is 170.204(b):
(b) Reference source. Standard. HL7 Version 3 Standard: Context-Aware Retrieval Application
(Infobutton) (incorporated by reference in § 170.299). (1) Implementation specifications.
HL7 Version 3 Implementation Guide: URL-Based Implementations of the Context-Aware
Information Retrieval (Infobutton) Domain, (incorporated by reference in § 170.299).
(2) Implementation specifications. HL7 Version 3 Implementation Guide: Context-Aware
Knowledge Retrieval (Infobutton) Service-Oriented Architecture Implementation Guide,
(incorporated by reference in § 170.299).
Below is from pertinent parts of 170.299:
(5) HL7 Version 3 Standard: Context-Aware Retrieval Application (Infobutton); Release 1,

Status

Proposal

  • Current module(that fulfilled 2011-12 ONC) for this can be found in left menu at Miscellaneous->Patient Education.
  • 2014 ONC guidelines wording appears to be very similar to 2011 ONC guidelines, except for all of the "Infobutton" stuff. Note that it can either be done via "Infobutton" stuff or "other" means. So, this is likely already working enough for 2014 ONC, but will need to await the testing scripts to ensure that any additional features will not be required to pass this criteria for 2014 ONC.
  • Could improve by integrating this nice free tool to acquire patient-specific education automatically based on diagnosis, meds, labs etc. Should even be able to work this into the patient portal, if needed.
