IPS
BACKGROUND
The International Patient Summary (IPS)
A Patient Summary is a standardized set of basic medical data that includes the most important clinical facts required to ensure safe and secure healthcare.

An International Patient Summary (IPS) document is an electronic health record extract containing essential healthcare information about a subject of care. As specified in EN 17269 and ISO/DIS 27269, it is designed for supporting the use case scenario for ‘unplanned, cross border care’, but it is not limited to it. It is intended to be international, i.e., to provide generic solutions for global application beyond a particular region or country.
CDA
Clinical Document Architecture (HL7® CDA®) Specification
HL7 CDA® R2 Implementation Guide International Patient Summary, Release 1
The goal of this Implementation Guide is to specify how to represent the International Patient Summary (IPS) in HL7's Clinical Document Architecture (CDA®). An alternative representation as templated HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources FHIR R4 is also provided. The initial focus of the International Patient Summary (IPS) was the unplanned care across national borders. This specification can be used and be useful also in local applications and be supportive of planned care.

Project: Clinical IPS Test Data in FHIR Format
25tIPSter: 25 Thousand International Patient Summary Test Records, Edition 2021
The goal for the 25TIPSTER Project is to provide 25.000 International Patient Summary Clinical Test Records in Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) format. The objective is to allow better education and prototyping for upcoming implementations of the IPS.

The project was initiated in December 2020 by Dr Kai U Heitmann from the health innovation hub (hih) of the Ministry of Health, Germany.
