Country-Specific

Integrations for use cases specific to outside the United States.

Finland

Epic is certified to send and query for documents from Kanta eArchive, and to send electronic medication orders, respond to refill requests, and perform medication reconciliation with the Finnish National Prescription Centre. To further enable medication workflows, Epic can query Valvira’s Terhikki to assign provider rights and restrictions based on their Valvira ID.

Epic supports integrations with the DVV population registry (VRK). This includes querying for patient demographic and relationship information (for both health and social care), and submitting birth and death notifications.

Epic exchanges referral and summary of care data between municipalities via the Finnish PikaXML standard.
