States of Implementation Roundtable 9: Creating an Open Source Business Rules Repository: Making the Idea a Reality

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A business rules repository as envisioned under the Affordable Care Act offers a practical solution to
advance modularity and interoperability of HHS technology, as well as furthering horizontal integration across HHS systems and programs such as Medicaid, SNAP, and TANF. Open source initiatives such as the “Federal Source Code Policy” and Code.gov could be used to help realize this potential. For example, a GitHub-like repository could enable program administrators to share and use different programs’ eligibility rules, thus avoiding redundant coding efforts while promoting transparency and accuracy. This roundtable will explore opportunities, challenges, and alternatives to establishing a robust rules repository, with the intent of generating a collaborative vision. This group discussion will offer an opportunity for forward-thinking and like-minded visionaries to brainstorm and find a path forward.
