|Title:||Ability to comply with industry standards for interfaces and services||Registry and Directory Services|
|Description:||The system SHALL comply with industry standards for interfaces and services within the limitations of currently accepted standards||STATEMENT: Enable the use of registry services and directories to uniquely identify, locate and supply links for retrieval of information related to:
- patients and providers for healthcare purposes;
- payers, health plans, sponsors, and employers for administrative and financial purposes;
- public health agencies for healthcare purposes, and
- healthcare resources and devices for resource management purposes.
DESCRIPTION: Registry and directory service functions are critical to successfully managing the security, interoperability, and the consistency of the health record data across an EHR-S. These services enable the linking of relevant information across multiple information sources within, or external to, an EHR-S for use within an application.
Directories and registries support communication between EHR Systems and may be organized hierarchically or in a federated fashion. For example, a patient being treated by a primary care physician for a chronic condition may become ill while out of town. The new provider's EHR-S interrogates a local, regional, or national registry to find the patient's previous records. From the primary care record, a remote EHR-S retrieves relevant information in conformance with applicable patient privacy and confidentiality rules.
An example of local registry usage is an EHR-S application sending a query message to the Hospital Information System to retrieve a patient's demographic data.
