About

Welcome to the Patient Summary Working Group

The purpose of this working group is to collaborate on the various aspects of creating, distributing and consuming a health records summary for a patient.

Part of this work will include a definition of what a meaningful health summary should be in the Canadian context, what elements it should include, the standards to be used in its definition and the technical interoperability considerations to support its life cycle.

There are a number of international initiatives that deal with summaries (e.g. IPS). This working group will analyze alignment of those specifications to the expected clinical scenarios that are expected in the Canadian context.

The pan-Canadian interoperability specificaitons and information about testing events (i.e., the Projectathon) can be found on InfoScribe. Notifications about upcoming events will be served through the Forums in this working group.

Welcome once again, please check out the group calendar for upcoming events and the Forum feeds for ongoing conversations.
