Integrations for use cases specific to outside the United States.


Organizations in the Netherlands can exchange HL7 CDA documents using Care Everywhere to connect to other health systems that care for patients. Epic can also send and receive documents using the following CDA standards:
  • Zorginformatiebouwstenen, Generieke Overdrachtsgegevens, and the Basisgegevensset Zorg.
  • eOverdracht, a nursing-specific CDA standard.

Epic provides the following interface specifications to support exchanging information specific to the Nethelands.

Outgoing BSN Verification Query read the specOutgoing BSN Verification Query technical specification

BSN or Burgerservicenummer verification is required in the Netherlands. There are two types of BSN queries: BSN request, and BSN verification. Using provided demographic data, a BSN request will retrieve and store the BSN for a patient, whereas the BSN verification serves to validate that the BSN a user has stored to the patient record is correct.
