One of the long term objectives and regulations for improving patient care coordination requires all healthcare providers to communicate with one another and securely share patient health information. Download the patient's Continuity of Care Document (CCD) as an XML file to share the patient's record.

Tip_Icon.png Tip: Send the Continuity of Care directly to the provider via Direct Messaging or eFax from the patient's signed clinical note. Certain CMS Incentive Program and some health IT regulations require the CCD to be sent via Direct Message.

The CCD provides the minimum of information necessary for the continuation of care:

  • Allergies and Adverse Reactions
  • Problems
  • Medications
  • Vitals
  • Results
