NZ Patient Summary (NZPS)

This FHIR implementation guide (IG) defines the draft FHIR translation of the HISO 10099:2022 NZ International Patient Summary (NZIPS) standard published for consultation in May & July 2022.

The mahi to develop HISO 10099:2022 standard has been guided by an expert advisory group and industry special interest group, comprising health professionals, software experts and consumer representatives who worked with HISO since October 2021 to review drafts and provide input.

About the draft standard

NZPS is a deliverable of the Interoperability Roadmap 2020 and a standard that will contribute to a more joined-up and equitable health system. NZPS is our adaptation for Aotearoa of the recognised ISO and HL7® International Patient Summary (IPS) standards.

The Global Digital Health Partnership endorses the IPS and promotes its adoption by member countries, including New Zealand, as a pivotal standard for interoperability at national level and globally.

NZPS tailors the IPS to New Zealand data standards and use case requirements.

NZPS is principally a standard for the makeup and exchange of a defined core personal health data set. In its first iteration, NZPS covers the person’s health conditions, immunisations, medicines, allergies and adverse reactions, measurements and vital signs, and test results.

The standard comprises a data set specification and related data exchange and data portability requirements. The standard provides a source of requirements for continuity of care, consumer access and patient record transfer use cases, defining the key data elements and how they are represented.

FHIR version

This is an R4 IG. None of the features it uses are changed in R4B, so it can be used as is with R4B systems. Packages for both R4 (tewhatuora.fhir.nzps.r4) and R4B (tewhatuora.fhir.nzps.r4b) are available.

Dependencies and relationship to other standards

The profiles in the NZPS are derived from the IPS profiles. The NZPS profiles also conform to constraints expressed in the FHIR NZBase profiles. The IG has dependencies on the following packages:
