HRSA plans to begin UDS+ proof of concept and testing activities with UDS Test Cooperative (UTC) members in early 2023 using the most updated version of the UDS+ Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) Implementation Guide (IG). Detailed information about technical specifications for UDS+ will be available when the final UDS+ FHIR IG is published.
Please note, timelines may change due to the scope and complexity of the initiative. HRSA is committed to providing regular updates to our stakeholders and we encourage you to sign up for the Primary Health Care Digest for announcements and monitor this UDS Modernization FAQ page for changes.
Additionally, health centers, Primary Care Associations (PCA), Health Center-Controlled Networks (HCCN), and health information technology (IT) vendors are welcome to join the UDS Test Cooperative (UTC), which is HRSA’s mechanism for increasing stakeholder involvement in the UDS Modernization Initiative. The UTC pilots proposed innovations to the UDS and helps HRSA better understand how these changes might affect health centers and their data. To join the UTC, contact us through the BPHC Contact Form and select Uniform Data System (UDS), UDS Modernization, then How to Join the UDS Test Cooperative.
