Public Health

Integrate with state, federal, and professional registries to track public health.

Registries

These interfaces cover opportunities for submission to public health or professional registries. Epic modules also include built-in custom integration with national registries such as the American College of Cardiology's CathPCI registry and the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) TIEDI registry, among others.

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

Outgoing Birth Registry Reporting read the specRead the technical specs

Generates a document that meets the IHE PCC specifications. From Stork, Epic's labor and delivery module, it generates a Labor and Delivery Summary XML document containing the national information necessary for electronic birth certificate submissions. Stork is required. A license for outgoing birth registry reporting is required. Additional fees might apply for uses other than connecting to a vital records birth registry for vital records birth reporting or clinical trials forms submission.

Outgoing Cancer Reporting

Allows organizations using Epic's oncology software, Beacon, to meet the Meaningful Use objective to send cancer case information to cancer registries. Additional fees might apply for uses other than connecting to public health cancer registries for public health cancer reporting or clinical trials forms submissions.

This Outgoing Results and Orders Interface sends messages for pathology reports that contain electronic cancer checklists. These messages conform to the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) Standards for Cancer Registries Volume V rules for constructing HL7 messages for CAP electronic cancer checklist synoptic reporting.

Outgoing Vaccination Query read the specRead the technical specs

Initiates a query to and receive a response from an immunization registry system. Each query requests data for a given patient. Generally, registries provide historical immunization data. Some registries additionally supply immunization recommendation data. The incoming portion of the interface does not directly update immunizations in the chart; the provider sees the response from the registry and decides what should be added to the patient record. HL7 2.5.1 specification conforms to the Center for Disease Control HL7 2.5.1 Implementation Guide for Immunization Messaging.
