Exchange information about scheduled appointments and procedures


Traditional HL7v2 interfaces are used to exchange information about scheduled appointments, procedures, and surgical cases.

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 Appointment Scheduling read the specRead the technical specs

In this scenario, an external system schedules an appointment that needs to be represented in Epic's scheduling system. The external system sends messages for new, rescheduled, updated, or canceled appointments, which are then reflected in the EMR. It can also receive information about appointment events, like check-in, check-out, or that a patient did not show for an appointment.
