|Title:||Standards Based Interoperability||Interchange Agreements|
|Description:||Provide automated health care delivery processes and seamless exchange of clinical, administrative, and financial information through standards-based solutions.
Interoperability standards enable an EHR-S to operate as a set of applications. This results in a unified view of the system where the reality is that several disparate systems may be coming together.
Interoperability standards also enable the sharing of information between EHR systems, including the participation in regional, national, or international information exchanges.
Timely and efficient access to information and capture of information is promoted with minimal impact to the user.
|STATEMENT: Support interactions with entity directories to determine the address, profile and data exchange requirements of known and/or potential partners.
Use the rules of interaction specified in the partner's interchange agreement when exchanging information.
DESCRIPTION: Systems that wish to communicate with each other, must agree on the parameters associated with that information exchange. Interchange Agreements allow an EHR-S to describe those parameters/criteria.
An EHR-S can use the entity registries to determine the security, addressing, and reliability requirements between partners.
An EHR-S can use this information to define how data will be exchanged between the sender and the receiver.
Discovery of interchange services and capabilities can be automatic.
- A new application can automatically determine a patient demographics source using a Universal Description and Discovery Integration (UDDI) for source discovery, and retrieve the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) specification for binding details.
- Good Health Hospital is a member of AnyCounty LabNet, for sharing laboratory results with other partners. Good Health Hospital periodically queries LabNet's directory (UDDI) to determine if additional information providers have joined LabNet. When new information providers are discovered, the Good Health IT establishes the appropriate service connections based upon the Service Description (WSDL).
