ACF Project

The Administration for Children & Families (ACF) is a division of the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) responsible for promoting the economic and social well-being of families, children, individuals, and communities.

Zane Networks has been selected as the technology partner for CRISP, Maryland’s state-designated health information exchange (HIE) and is a grantee for ACF’s Human Services Interoperability Innovations (HSII) cooperative agreement. The choice of the Operational Data Hub (ODH) platform was based on its capacity to facilitate community care coordination and case management across various health and human services sectors, including federal, state, tribal, and local entities. The ODH platform also aligns with emerging technical standards for data management and interoperable healthcare technologies.

In the ongoing project, the ODH plays a crucial role in facilitating the exchange of Maternal Opioid Misuse (MOM) care plans across state borders. This involves assessing the structure of the respective care plans to determine the most effective method for data sharing. MOM care plans shared through the CRISP HIE undergo conversion from a CDA-document format into Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) v4.0 format, enabling their ingestion into the ODH.

The Operational Data Hub was designed to help care teams take a patient-centered approach to care management. It allows practitioners from multiple organizations to have immediate, yet secure access to patient information so they can effectively participate in the complete spectrum of care associated with an individual. We’re honored to support the worthwhile efforts of CRISP as they work directly with families to coordinate the medical, behavioral, and social care of their patient populations.
