The LG Electronics North American Innovation Center, LG NOVA, selected four digital health companies among the nine finalists for its Mission for the Future global challenge program: Digital care platform Digbi Health, precision medicine company LifeNome, sensor-based diagnostics company Mindset Medical, and virtual treatment and analytics firm XRHealth. The four companies will help support LG’s new Digital Health business unit.

ONC and the Health Resources and Services Administration have launched a joint United States Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI) initiative to support the modernization of HRSA’s Uniform Data System, which is a data set used for annual reporting for facilities funded under the Health Center Program. The effort will align UDS data sets with FHIR standards and transition the UDS data set to existing patient-level reporting requirements with USCDI and other quality reporting efforts.
