  • One or more OpenHIE implementations of this workflow exist in one or more countries
Standard(s) *
ADT^A01, ADT^A04, ADT^A05 - PIF IHE ITI-8 Transactions
Assumptions and Prerequisites
  1. 1.
    The Point-of-Service (PoS) system is a trusted application known by the HIE and it is registered with the interoperability layer to be able to send and receive data securely (Common message security workflow).
  2. 2.
    The workflow will result in a positive acknowledgement message when the patient is successfully created in the Client Registry or if the patient already exists in the Client Registry.
  3. 3.
    The workflow will not register a duplicate patent if the patient already exists in the Client Registry.
Actors
  • PoS - The point-of-service system that captures patient identifiers, is responsible for sending the identifiers to the HIE.
  • IL - Mediates the transactions between the PoS system and the Client Registry.
  • CR - Manages patient demographics and identifier details.
