Registration & Identity

Establish a shared patient identity to support any patient-specific data exchange. Manage registration functions.

HL7v2

Our HL7v2 interfaces were created to connect Epic systems to external identity management systems. However, these interfaces can also be used to create, negotiate, and manage patient identity in other systems.

Outgoing interfaces refer to interfaces in which the EMR sends the message. Incoming interfaces refer to interfaces in which the EMR receives the message.

Incoming Patient Administration read the specRead the technical specs

In this scenario, patient identity and registration changes can be made in your system. This interface enables the Epic system to receive messages for new or changed demographic information, visits (ADT), registration information (guarantors and insurance coverages), allergies, and bed status updates.

Outgoing Patient Administration read the specRead the technical specs

In this scenario, the Epic EMR is the system of record. It informs external systems of new patient creation, changes to patient demographic information, visits (ADT), registration information (guarantors and insurance coverages), allergies, and bed status updates. The ability to send allergy updates is only applicable if the organization is using Epic's Allergies feature and needs to send allergy updates to an external system. This interface does not send final coded diagnoses, procedures, or DRGs after a hospital account is coded.

Outgoing MPI and Demographics Query read the specRead the technical specs

In this scenario, a user of the Epic EMR is attempting to search for a patient. First, a search is performed on the MPI local to the Epic system; then, the Epic system queries an external EMPI. The user can then select the correct patient from a list of candidates returned in the response message. This is an HL7v2 integration; if you're looking for HL7v3 patient discovery, check out this section for more information.
