It gives me great pleasure to provide you with the first release of the Patient Summary Standards Set (PSSS), recently published by the Joint Initiative Council (JIC), a collaborative of 8 international digital health standards development organisations, including CEN/TC 251 Health Informatics.
The PSSS provides an overview of standards, standards artefacts and profiles that meet agreed criteria and applicable for a specific Use Case. It does not recommend a single or specific implementation for a particular topic. Rather, it provides sufficient detail to enable different stakeholders to choose the standards, standards artefacts and profiles most suited to satisfying their requirements/Use Case.
The work on the JIC PSSS has been carried out alongside and with support from the CEN International Patient Summary (IPS) project, which will produce an EN and TS for Europe in line with the global IPS specifications. Please look forward to the Enquiry ballot on the EN in the upcoming weeks!
