The ClinicalSummary data model provides a snapshot of the patient's chart at a moment in time. This is useful if you need to receive a patient's clinical information, whether historical or current.

The ClinicalSummary data model is based on documents that are formatted using Clinical Document Architecture (CDA), which focuses on different aspects of the patient's chart (e.g., allergies, immunizations, medications). We can map any CDA document type to our ClinicalSummary data model, but the most common is the Continuity of Care Document (CCD).

Keep in mind that it may take up to 15 seconds to receive a response from the EHR system when querying for a clinical summary, depending on how long it takes the EHR system to generate a CCD.

The ClinicalSummary data model has event types that are enabled for data on demand. Learn more about data on demand.
