HL7 Cross-Paradigm Information Sharing for eLTSS, R1

HL7 Cross-Paradigm Information Sharing for Electronic Long-Term Services & Supports (eLTSS), Release 1 – US Realm –  published in 2019

The purpose of the eLTSS informative document is to inform stakeholders interested in enabling standards-based electronic sharing of Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) service plans, and more specifically, to guide those developing and implementing software solutions in the LTSS ecosystem.

The scope of this informative document is to describe how Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) data requirements, documented in the 56 data elements included in the eLTSS Dataset, can be represented for exchange and sharing using nationally recognized content and vocabulary standards.

The eLTSS Dataset was crosswalked to the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) and Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA) standards, as well as to any FHIR or C-CDA mandated or recommended code sets for specific data elements. This informative document summarizes the findings from this crosswalk regarding how well FHIR and C-CDA align with the eLTSS Dataset, and identifies any gaps discovered during the mapping process. Detailed mapping information is provided in the appendices.
