Main purpose

This part standard supplements Part 1(EN 13940-1). Its specific purpose is to define a system of concepts for the provision of care in clinical processes to an individual subject of care and the corresponding workflow. Furthermore the concepts aim to enable the management, including communication, so as to support continuity of care, taking into consideration data handling, decision making, quality control, and resource management. It provides the terminology for planning, delivery and follow-up of the activities and health conditions that form the overall health care and clinical process. An additional aim is to enable the reuse of clinical data for other purposes than the direct care of an individual subject of care at group level for follow up and knowledge management.

This part standard identifies the most common objects processed that can be identified in clinical processes. It also takes into consideration the resource aspects, the responsibilities of health care providers and means for subject's of care participation. Whenever continuity of health care delivery implies social interventions as part of, or in support to, the health care process towards health recovery, these are to be mentioned wherever relevant in the process and workflow descriptions; but addressing those social interventions in depth is not within the scope of this European Standard.

Topics outside the scope

This European Standard does not mean to be prescriptive with regard to the performance or not of any health care activities or to the clinical content of the specific processes of health care; neither does it prescribe a specific method or language for process modelling.
