The International Patient Summary
The IPS is an electronic health record extract containing essential healthcare information for use in the unscheduled, cross-border care scenario, as well as for local, regional and other care scenarios. It is a standardized set of basic clinical data that includes the most important health and care related facts required to ensure safe and secure healthcare.
This minimal and non-exhaustive set of data elements have been defined by ISO/EN 17269 and delivered by HL7 in both CDA and FHIR using a curated set of SNOMED CT terms.
What is the IPS Terminology?
Unlike SNOMED International’s Global Patient Set which is a flat list of SNOMED CT codes and terms, the IPS Terminology will provide implementers with an open product that can be used in healthcare solutions using the power of SNOMED CT through its query language and hierarchies for the specified scope. Use of the IPS Terminology will allow for more effective use of clinical data analytics and decision support, and for Artificial Intelligence applications.
