International Patient Summary (IPS)

From HL7Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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 an international document and associated templates based on HL7 CDA R2 (or a future CDA release) and potentially the FHIR standards, with value sets to support data elements within those templates.

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.
