Track overview

Short Description

This track focuses on FHIR based RESTFUL exchange of orders from an EHR to a supplier or supplier HIT (or Hub) and the ability to update the order after order fulfillment.

Long Description

Ability to define a Post-Acute FHIR based Order (PAO) for DME and Home Health Services to facilitate order exchange between the ordering provider and the DME supplier or the Home Health Agency.

Test: To send a message bundle with a Task, Subscription, Order (e.g. DeviceRequest) and supporting documentation). The receiver (supplier, service provider, HUB) is able to receive it, respond back to the message, instantiate the Task, and has the ability to respond back to the ordering provider’s subscription with an alert or Task order when the Task is updated. We also want to test the ability to exchange an updated and cancel for the order or cancel the order.
