IHE and AHIMA are looking for International feedback (until July 24, 2017) on their white paper entitled Patient Registration Demographic Data Capture and Exchange. The White Paper was developed by the IHE Patient Care Coordination (PCC) Committee with participation of the AHIMA Standards Task Force. It is based on the AHIMA Patient Registration Use Case and specifies the requirements and constraints for patient demographic data that should be collected and exchanged for patient registration during an emergency department visit at a healthcare organization.
Canadian implementers are invited to provide their feedback, suggestions and guidance. Standardization across multiple jurisdictions and applications will help to enable interoperability, and potentially reduce Canadian customization requirements and associated costs.
Details on where to access the paper, how to comment and the timelines can be found on the IHE Community.
