DEVELOPMENT OF AN OPEN SOURCE PROVIDER AND ORGANIZATION REGISTRY SERVICE FOR REGIONAL HEALTH NETWORKS

Oliver Heinze, Alexander Ihls, Björn Bergh

Abstract

In the Rhine-Neckar Region a Healthcare Information Exchange Network (HIEN) should be implemented providing a personal electronic health record for patients and health professionals. Therefore a standards-based architecture following IHE profiles especially from the IT-Infrastructure domain was conceptualized. One of the central components will be a provider and organization registry service (PORS) in order to provide a unique identification and to resolve identifications to concrete information. Each network partner has to be registered via manual data entry or preferably by standards-based massage interaction (HL7 v2 MFN M02). The PORS will be implemented as open source project using current technologies in order to be a reference implementation to be available for other related projects. It consists of a multi-tier-layer architecture fitting into an over-all service oriented architecture. A PORS will be a central component of any HIEN to provide a unique identifier and to resolve information of providers and organization. The described open source project can be used by other related projects to avoid the reinvention of the wheel.
