The Provider data model contains a provider's demographics, qualifications, and roles. If you persist provider data to your system, we recommend using this to keep your database in sync with the EHR system. Healthcare organizations that support the Provider data model trigger messages when provider records are created, updated, or deactivated.

Most patient-centric data models like PatientAdmin, Scheduling, and Order have references to provider data. The Provider data model, though, is not patient-centric. It focuses on who the provider is, not the provider's role in regards to the patient's treatment.

A healthcare organization can typically send Provider data via an MFN HL7v2 feed or their own proprietary API. Just note that MFN interfaces aren't incredibly common. However, the setup is site-specific, and we recommend talking with your connection to see what they support.
