Continuity of Care Record (CCR)
The Continuity of Care Record is a standard specification being developed jointly by The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Health Information Management and System Society (HIMSS) and the ASTM International.
The CCR is being developed and enhanced in response to the need to organize and make transportable a data set containing basic patient information consisting of the most relevant and timely facts about a patient's health status (e.g., allergies, medications, vital signs, diagnosis and recent procedures), recent care provided, as well as recommendations for future care (care plan) and the reason for referral or transfer.
The goal is to create a CCR that will enable the next provider to easily access the information listed above at the beginning of the first encounter and easily update the information when the patient goes to another provider, in order to support the safety, quality, and continuity of patient care.
