IHE Patient Care Coordination (PCC) domain was established in July 2005 to deal with integration issues that cross providers, patient problems or time. It deals with general clinical care aspects such as document exchange, order processing, and coordination with other specialty domains. PCC also addresses workflows that are common to multiple specialty areas and the integration needs of specialty areas that do not have a separate domain within IHE.

PCC Vision

The vision of Patient Care Coordination is to continually improve patient outcomes through the use of technology connecting patients and their care providers across healthcare disciplines and care paths.

PCC Mission

The mission of Patient Care Coordination is to develop and maintain interoperability profiles to support coordination of care for patients where care crosses providers, patient conditions and health concerns, or time.


The Patient Care Coordination Domain is sponsored by:

HIMSS the Health Information Management Systems Society
ACP the American College of Physicians
