Patient Administration, also known as ADT (Admit, Discharge and Transfer), supports many of the core administrative functions in healthcare such as person and patient registration and encounter management. Generally, information is entered into a Patient or Person Registry or into a Patient Administration system and passed to other systems (e.g., other registries, clinical, ancillary and financial systems).

The Personnel Management Domain spans a variety of clinical-administrative information functions associated with organizations, individuals, animals and devices involved in the delivery and support of healthcare services. The domain content includes roles, relationships, credentials, certificates, licenses, capacities, capabilities, competencies, qualifications, privileges, responsibilities, and assignments issued to, or managed by, the involved organizations, individuals, animals and devices.


The PM Domain assumes the responsibility for communicating specific data associated with the domain content including status, coded names, demographic details, participating parties, activation and termination dates, and associated supporting documentation. The Personnel Management Domain is organized into two Topic Areas:

  1. Provider Registry - activities associated with registering individual health care practitioners or care givers in Master Files or registry environments.
  2. Organization Registry - activities associated with registering individual health care organizations in Master Files or registry environments.

The Real Time Location System Topic currently focuses on unsolicited (not request/response) notification messages between Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) and other healthcare systems, such as Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software, patient registration and medical logistics systems, for the purpose of tracking the whereabouts of patients, healthcare providers, and devices used in a healthcare setting. In addition to providing the ability to simply track the location of patients, providers, and devices, this topic also allows for notifications regarding the co-location of patients, providers, and devices (i.e. a patient, provider, and/or device are all in the same location). The longer term goal is to fold other administrative registries into this domain; patient registry, person registry, service delivery location, provider, organization registries; identity document (also a registry function)
