The Dynamic Care Planning (DCP) Profile provides the structures and transactions for care planning, creating, updating and sharing Care Plans that meet the needs of many, such as providers, patients and payers. Care Plans can be dynamically updated as the patient interacts with the healthcare system. FHIR® resources and transactions are used by this profile. This profile does not define, nor assume, a single Care Plan for a patient.
The ability to target appropriate services and to coordinate care over time, across multiple clinicians and sites of service, with the engagement of the individual (i.e., longitudinal coordination of care) is essential to alleviating fragmented, duplicative and costly care for these medically-complex and/or functionally impaired persons.
Care planning is needed to manage medically complex and/or functionally impaired individuals as they interact with the health care system. Often, these individuals require real time coordination of the care as they receive care from multiple care providers and care settings. HL7® Care Plan Domain Analysis Model depicts the care plan as a tool used by clinicians to plan and coordinate care . Effective care planning and care coordination for patient with complex health problems and needs are needed throughout the world.
This profile depicts how multiple care plans can be shared and used to plan and coordinate care.
