Continuity of Care Record (CCR)
The Continuity of Care Record (CCR) is a health record standard specification developed jointly by ASTM International, the Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS), the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and other health informatics vendors.
The CCR standard is a patient health summary standard. It is a way to create flexible documents that contain the most relevant and timely core health information about a patient, and to send these electronically from one care giver to another. It contains various sections such as patient demographics, insurance information, diagnosis and problem list, medications, allergies and care plan. These represent a "snapshot" of a patient's health data that can be useful or possibly lifesaving, if available at the time of clinical encounter. The ASTM CCR standard is designed to permit easy creation or igestion by a physician, dentist, or health provider using an electronic health record (EHR) system at the end of an encounter. Because it is expressed in the standard data interchange language known as XML, a CCR can potentially be created, read and interpreted by any EHR or EMR software application. A CCR can also be exported in other formats, such as PDF.
The Continuity of Care Record (CCR) is a standard data interchange supported by most major Healthcare Practice Managment Systems including Allscripts, eClinicalworks, Nextgen, e-MDs, OBEverywhere, Solventus, Epic, etc. Please see partial list below.
