The UpToDate® HL7 Infobutton can support your institution's EHR efforts to meet Meaningful Use / Promoting Interoperability requirements through linked clinical decision support and patient information distribution.
UpToDate Search Results Tailored to Your Individual Patients
The HL7 Infobutton facilitates quick access to UpToDate content relevant to your patient’s specific disease, condition, medication, lab result, and contextual information. With HL7 Infobuttons embedded in the patient record, clinicians see targeted search results in seconds, keeping the focus on the patient.
The UpToDate HL7 Infobutton uses codified data, such as current ICD concepts for patient condition or LOINC for patient lab results, to retrieve UpToDate content that is targeted to a specific patient. UpToDate has developed HL7 infobutton access for use with most EHR/EMR systems, including Allscripts, Epic, Cerner, and Meditech. HL7-assisted free text search capability and tracking of patient education materials are also available with select vendors.
UpToDate integration requires an appropriate license and is not available in all markets.
UpToDate has collaborated with a select number of EMR/EHR vendors and is currently evaluating making its tools available to a broader audience of partners. UpToDate will notify the partner community when these APIs are available.
