      Will break this into multiple items where specific uses are

      1) based on counts of members in a population (e.g. quality measures),

      2) deidentified data (quality improvement, research, population health) and

      3) other uses require identified data (e.g. public health and are subject to either or both regulation and patient consent).

       

      Reference HHS/CMS standards for deidentification as additional information.

      Description

      Patient data should not be used beyond the care encounter without their express permission.

      Existing Wording:

      Gather and aggregate SDOH data for uses beyond the point of care (e.g. public health, population health, quality measurement, risk adjustment, quality improvement, and research)

      Proposed Wording:

      Gather and aggregate SDOH data for uses beyond the point of care (e.g. public health, population health, quality measurement, risk adjustment, quality improvement, and research), according to the patient's perferences and permissions.
