Status: active
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Medical sciences and health care facilities in general): 11.020
scope:

This guide covers a set of requirements outlining the properties required to create a universal healthcare identifier (UHID) system. Use of the UHID is expected to initially be focused on the population of the United States but there is no inherent limitation on how widely these identifiers may be applied.

This guide sets forth the fundamental considerations for a UHID that can support at least four basic functions effectively:

Positive identification of patients when clinical care is rendered;

Automated linkage of various computer-based records on the same patient for the creation of lifelong electronic health care files;

Provision of a mechanism to support data security for the protection of privileged clinical information; and

The use of technology for patient records handling to keep health care operating costs at a minimum.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
