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.

In outgoing interfaces, the referral information is being sent to an external system.

Outgoing Cancer Reporting

This interface allows organizations using Epic to meet the Meaningful Use objective to send cancer case information to cancer registries, when using Epic's oncology software. This integration uses the Direct protocol to send the information.

Birth Integration

Epic can electronically request birth certificates from a birth registry by exchanging data using the IHE Retrieve Form for Data Capture and Clinical Research Document profiles to facilitate reporting to external registries. Epic can also push birth information to external registries using the Direct protocol.

Outgoing IRIS Ophthalmology Encounter Summary

Epic automatically generates a document that meets the specifications of the Intelligent Research in Sight (IRIS) registry. This highly specialized registry uses a documentation format that does not conform to the standards of other registries. The generated document contains a summary of the patient's ophthalmology-related encounter and is intended to be used only in the context of outpatient visits.

Other registries

Much of the data relevant to registry and quality reporting is already captured in the course of providing care to patients. Epic software can abstract data from the chart and send it to the appropriate collection agency. Current integrations include...
