    10:00-10:05 - Introduction - Michelle Williamson  

    10:05-10:15 - Structured Data Capture (SDC) - Vijay Shah, JBS International, Inc.  Learning Objective: Attendees will learn about the Structure Data Capture (SDC) profile that will help understand use structured set of data that can be accessed from EHRs and be stored for merger with comparable data for various purposes e.g. electronic Case Report Form, adverse event reporting, collecting information for determination of coverage, etc.  See how SDC Forms can be used to collect information in a more uniform and systemic manner and how that collected data can be submitted to the end system in a light-weight manner keeping the form context information.  Discover how using SDC Profile make sharing information across various domains more efficient and more effective. 

    10:15-10:20 - SDC Q&A

    10:20-10:30 - Family Planning - Johanna Goderre, HHS Office of Population Affairs  Learning Objective: Attendees will learn about the family planning profile that will help providers capture structured data critical for a range of reproductive and sexual health clinical performance measures and how their electronic health record systems can interoperate with quality reporting data systems. 

    10:30-10:45 - Vital Events Reporting - Michelle Williamson, CDC/NCHS and Lori Fourquet, eHealth Signs Learning Objective: Attendees will learn about two IHE profiles: Birth and Fetal Death Reporting-Extended (BFDR-E) and Vital Records Death Reporting (VRDR) that support pre-population of data from electronic health record systems to forms and enable interoperability with states’ electronic vital registration systems for birth, death and fetal death reporting to meet Federal, state and local government reporting requirements. The primary driver for implementation is to improve the timeliness, quality and accuracy of vital statistics data that are widely used to monitor and improve the nation’s health.    

    10:45 - 10:55 - Healthy Weight - Brittani Harmon, CDC; Lori Reed-Fourquet, e-HealthSign  Learning Objective: Attendees will learn about the Healthy Weight profile that supports capture and communication of information supporting care management and population health monitoring of healthy weight. Flexibility in the capture and communication of structured data allows for multiple implementation approaches to maximize the ability to communicate healthy weight information. This includes support for communication of Occupational Health information and healthy weight risk factors.

    10:55 - 11:00 - Cancer Reporting - Wendy Blumenthal, CDC  Learning Objective:  Attendees will learn about the IHE Profile Physician Reportingn to a Public Health Repository - Cancer Registry (PRPH-Ca) that supports implementation of standardized transmission of data about a patient's cancer case from an ambulatory healthcare provider EHR to the public health central cancer registry.  The primary purpose for implementation is to increase the security, completeness, timeliness and accuracy of cancer surveillance data for improved public health.  

    11:00 - 11:15 - Early Hearing Detection and Intervention - John Eichwald, CDC; Lisa Nelson, MSc, MBA, Lantana Consulting Group   Learning Objective: Attendees will learn about a new Hearing Plan of Care profile that will help providers capture hearing screening results and information about the newborn and create a plan of care that provides clinical decision support to clinicians performing follow-up care.  See how information captured by hearing screening devices and electronic medical record systems can be used to produce standard Hearing Plans of Care.  Discover why using new Hearing Plan of Care standards make sharing information with Public Health and care providers more efficient and more effective.   

    11:15 - 11:35 - PH Profile Q&A 

    11:35 - 11:50 - Research Profiles and White Papers - Landen Bain, CDISC; Alana St. Clair, CDISC  Learning Objective: Attendees will learn about a set of six IHE profiles that were co-developed with CDISC, a Standards Development Organization in the medical research space which has worked with QRPH for a number of years. These profiles--CRD, DSC, RPE, DEX, RM - comprise a body of work which CDISC calls Healthcare Link, the intent of which is to create all the capabilities needed for EHR-enabled research.    

    11:50 - 11:55 - Research Profiles and White Papers Q&A

    11:55 - 12:00 - Timeline and Next Steps - Didi Davis
