Limitations, Dependencies, and Preconditions for Consideration
Applicable Security Patterns for Consideration
  • Organizations may use an internal (native) or external EHR/document management system that provides the following capabilities:
    • Send and receive patient records to providers with electronic referrals.
    • Send and receive documents related to the use cases using secure messaging.
    • Integrate information from other systems, as required, to provide complete documentation.
    • Send multiple documents, as necessary, to meet the use cases.
    • Create metadata where appropriate.
    • Ensure that all documents clearly indicate the patient and provider responsible for each item of documentation created or signed off by a different provider.
    • Clearly indicate the document type (e.g. Mime type) for each document.
    • Provide electronic or digital signature capabilities for all clinical documents.
    • Consume the associated clinical data and integrate it into the patient’s medical record.
  • Best practices for this interoperability need dictate including reason or indication for the order as part of the durable medical equipment order, and including medical necessity either in the order or comment field of the order to ensure stakeholder alignment on the patient's needs.
