Scope

The International Patient Summary is a "Minimal and non-exhaustive Patient Summary, specialty-agnostic, condition-independent, but readily usable by all clinicians for the unscheduled (cross-border) care of a patient."

The goal of this project is to build international implementation guides and associated templates based on HL7 CDA R2 (or a future CDA release) and FHIR resource profiles, with value sets to support data elements within those templates and profiles.

The initial use cases will be the patient summary, providing support for emergency care and unplanned care.

The project intends to provide the same conceptual content in both the CDA R2 and FHIR specifications, but will not attempt to provide or require capability for automatic transformation of instances from one standard to the other.

These templates/profiles aim to:

  • Serve for both cross-jurisdictional (through adaptation/extension for multi-language and realm scenarios, including translation) and national (through localization) patient summaries.
  • Support emergency care and unplanned care in any country (home and foreign), regardless of language
  • Define value sets based on international vocabularies that are usable and understandable in any country

Please refer to the PSS [1] for more details.

An updated version of the PSS is under the approval process (already approved by the SDWG).

The latest version of the revised PSS is available here
