HL7 Version 2 Implementation Guide: Diagnostic Audiology Results, Release 1 - US Realm
Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs exist world-wide to help identify infants who are deaf or hard of hearing so that critical time for language and communication development are not lost. Unidentified hearing loss is a neuro-developmental emergency. With early identification, infants who are deaf or hard of hearing can be connected to appropriate services to prevent or reduce language and communication delays.
This implementation guide focuses on the transmission of the diagnostic evaluation data elements from the audiologist's electronic health record (EHR) system to a recipient of data, which may be another EHR or a state or territorial Public Health Information System.
HL7 Version 2 Implementation Guide: Diagnostic Audiology Results, Release 1 - US Realm may also go by the following names or acronyms:
- Supports sharing of diagnostic for newborns previously referred for audiological evaluation
- Ensures timely sharing of data with professionals who facilitate services and support for optimal brain and speech language development in children with permanent hearing loss
- Rhode Island and Oregon EHDI have known interest in implementing the standard
This IG extends EHDI interoperability standards, building off the existing EHDI v2 IG.
