RDSS 59 - Consultations and Transfers of Care Requirements, Design and Standards Selection
The Consultations & Transfers of Care RDSS addresses the electronic exchange of information between clinicians, particularly between requesting and consulting clinicians, to support consultations, including specialty services and second opinions. It also addresses the exchange of clinical information needed during transfers of care. A transfer of care occurs when a patient is discharged or transferred from one health setting to another, such as to or from an acute care hospital, skilled nursing or rehabilitation facility, or to the home with or without home healthcare services.
