Interoperate

Community. Nation. World.

Care Everywhere, Epic's interoperability platform, exchanges patient data with other healthcare institutions, HIEs, and U.S. government agencies on the eHealthExchange (formerly the Nationwide Health Information Network). Care Everywhere can exchange information directly between systems without an intermediary and follows transaction and terminology standards specified by IHE, ONC, HITSC, and other industry groups. In our query-based approach, Care Everywhere uses transactions from the XCA and XDS.b integration profiles developed by IHE. When pushing or receiving pushed information for planned transitions of care, Care Everywhere uses XDR Direct Project standards.

Check out our supported standards to learn more.

Using both query-based and push-based approaches, Care Everywhere can receive and display Continuity of Care Documents and several other industry standard document types (including all CDA-based documents). We also support the exchange of documents defined in the Consolidated CDA framework required for the U.S.'s Meaningful Use 2014 and 2015 Certification Criteria.
