Next-Generation Digital Standards SPG
The Next-Generation Digital Standards (NGDS) SPG was established to leverage subject matter expertise from members representing a broad cross-section of the industry as we continue to develop a common approach to setting digital standards, structures, and implementation guidelines. In this group, we leverage member inputs across geographies and communities to ensure ACORD API Specifications are cross-domain. Members provide valuable subject matter expertise and guidance by sharing business scenarios, providing recommendations on Standards Enhancement requests, providing feedback based on implementation experience, and more.
⮞ Meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9 am ET
Next-Gen Digital Standards Technical Subgroup
The ACORD NGDS Technical Subgroup is a key forum for items related to current Next-Gen Digital Standards development activities. While this group delves into more technical aspects of the Standard, we also discuss some high-level business concepts and may create separate focus groups to discuss/review specific topics as needed. These focus groups meet separately and report back to the Technical subgroup for review and agreement before submitting to the SPG for inclusion in the Standard. The Technical subgroup helps drive the conversation and direction of where the NGDS Standard will focus next.
⮞ Meets every other Tuesday 9:00-10:00 am ET
Next-Gen Digital Standards Electronic Health Records Subgroup
The Electronic Health Standards Subgroup is part of the Next-Gen Digital Standards, with a focus on the life insurance industry. The advent of electronic health records has triggered a need for a standardized format for the transmission of electronic health data between carriers, vendors, and point of care source systems. This subgroup leverages the expertise of its members and existing industry standards to identify the gaps in digitizing unstructured data. This subgroup reports back to the Technical Subgroup for review and agreement before submitting to the SPG for inclusion in the Standard. Members and nonmembers are welcome to join this subgroup.
