Submitting WG/Project/Implementer Group

Patient Administration/Implementer Communities

Justification

A key challenge of healthcare is knowing about the resources available in the local, regional, and global healthcare networks. When a patient's care is transitioned from one setting to another, it's critical to know about the doctors, hospitals and clinics available to receive that patient. When a patient is travelling, it improves care when local healthcare facilities can retrieve the patient's up to date medical history from a primary care provider. There are currently no widely adopted standards for exchanging this directory information. Currently, healthcare organizations use a variety of labor intensive processes to gather, normalize, de-duplicate and consume this data. They share custom flat files, scrape web pages, or pay 3rd parties to curate their practitioner data. Organizational data is often isolated in different networks and aren't easily shared.

This track will test how FHIR can be used to standardize the exchange of services/provider directory data. Defining how healthcare organizations can participate in a federated healthcare directory will promote interoperability and innovation. (And hopefully review the Provider Directory created by MiHN, and some mappings on the IHE HPD profile into FHIR)

This track will also lead into the creation of Appointments based on schedules found associated with the above services/providers, and also verify the workflow of proceeding from a booked appointment into the creation of the Encounter.
