So we’ve had some interest in New Zealand concerning Provider registries – locations where the details of providers and the services they provide can be maintained and discovered. There are a lot of potential uses for such a registry, but the two that we’ve been discussing are locating targets for referrals, and locating providers by specialty as part of Care Pathways.
Typical query use cases could include:
- Find a Provider by name (or other personal detail)
- Find a Provider by specialty – eg a physiotherapist
- Locate a Service provided by a facility like a hospital
There are lots more of course, but these will get us started.
