Did You Know....

HITSP is a volunteer-driven, consensus-based organization.

Welcome to www.HITSP.org

The Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP) is a cooperative partnership between the public and private sectors. The Panel was formed for the purpose of harmonizing and integrating standards that will meet clinical and business needs for sharing information among organizations and systems.

* UPDATE:
HITSP’s contract with HHS concluded on April 30, 2010. Dr. David Blumenthal, the National Coordinator for Healthcare Information Technology, thanked the Panel for their contributions.

Emergency Responder Electronic Health Record (ER-EHR) Interoperability Specification (Complete Set)
Pre-hospital care and emergency response lack interoperable information technology infrastructure and Standard Development Organizations (SDO) consensus standards. From an interoperability perspective, the American Health Information Community (AHIC) Emergency Responder Use Case treats pre-hospital care similar to hospital care in spite of heterogeneous pre-hospital organizational structures and overlapping policy jurisdictions which must deal with cross-affinity domain interactions, poor communications, emerging technologies and policies. Additionally, first responders must potentially deal with unreliable communications, power and failure prone systems while working under stressful conditions with inadequate resources. The Care Delivery Technical Committee (CDTC) was challenged by wanting to focus on interoperability, achieve closure, be pragmatic and have a futuristic perspective.
