Purpose and Scope

Usage 1 :

Usage Type :    
Usage Description :    
Content designed for use in electronic systems supporting care planning functionality. Care planning functionality encompasses many professions/sectors which may have differing descriptions in a traditional health record including treatment plans, birthing plans, support plans, care plans, intervention plans or care order sets. This content can facilitate interoperation of care plans across organisational boundaries with appropriately designed message specifications. This is a repository of activities for care planning, which may, or may not, exist in existing national care planning templates or activity bundles, which can be used to provide searchable content for end users. This is part of the Care Planning Activities subset, which could be linked to referral forms where functionality allows.
