Here’s the announcement from Greg Bloom. We interviewed him about Open Referral in Episode #10. Go join the conversation and give him some feedback!
We are pleased to share the first draft (v0.0) of Open Referral’s Human Services Data Specification. This is our ‘pre-alpha’ version of a common format for structuring and exchanging directory information about health, human, and social services.
We now begin a two-week public commenting period. Each week, we’ll synthesize the feedback and report back to the discussion group. On July 9th, our Workgroup will convene at our inaugural Workshop (sponsored by the California HealthCare Foundation, and hosted by the California Endowment in Oakland). There, we will deliberate in partnership with representatives of our local teams. After the Workshop, we’ll publish an updated version of the spec. Then we’ll get to work on testing it!
In the meantime, I’m happy to answer questions, receive feedback, and discuss in detail.
