Query for Documents Outside a Specific Health Information Exchange Domain

Since STU3, HL7 FHIR has included the Patient/$match operation which allows for patient matching using MPI-based logic. The FHIR DocumentReference resource can then be used to query for documents. When these are performed across communities, this provides comparable functionality to the XCPD and XCA standards already referenced. For this reason, we recommend that HL7 FHIR be included as an implementation specification in this sub-section with the $match operation and DocumentReference resource called out specifically in the limitations, dependencies, & preconditions area. The match operation replaced a similar MPI query available in DSTU2. Suggested maturity of Pilot and Adoption Level of 1.     Julie Maas, CEO, EMR Direct
