Abstract

Electronic medical record interoperability remains an elusive goal for the clinical informatics community. The HL7 Emergency Care Workgroup created an emergency care domain analysis model that organizes existing HL7 standards into a clinician friendly information model. The model supports the capture of domain knowledge and encoding in a sharable format. The result is a domain information model that supports interoperability of information and processes in diverse Emergency Department information systems.
