Patient Plan of Care Profile
Patient Plan of Care Content (PPOC) Profile
The PPOC Profile that extends the description of content structures for the plan of care in the current technical framework, and is based on data elements from the Nursing Process currently in common use.
The PPOC focuses on the following six components in a clinical document:
2. Nursing Diagnosis
3. Outcomes Identification
5. Implementation (Interventions)
This profile defines the implementation of an HL7 CDA document to represent the data elements needed for care planning, along with the IHE profile bindings to support the exchange of the information. The PPOC is a content profile that is intended to eventually sit within a larger folder structure that contains documents related to continuity of care for the patient. This profile also defines mechanisms to group them into a single logical folder.
