IS 107 EHR Centric

This Interoperability Specification consolidates all information exchanges and standards that involve an EHR System amongst the thirteen HITSP Interoperability Specifications in place as of the February 13, 2009 enactment of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This Interoperability Specification is organized as a set of HITSP Capabilities, with each Capability specifying a business service that an EHR system might address in one or more of the existing HITSP Interoperability Specifications (e.g., the Communicate Hospital Prescriptions Capability supports electronic prescribing for inpatient prescription orders). Greater detail on these Capabilities is provided as part this Interoperability Specification, with their underlying HITSP constructs referenced in the Complete Library on HITSP.org.
