The Unique careMESH Provider Directory Architecture

Every part of our National Directory is based on the HL7® FHIR® R4 standard. So even though source data is rarely available as a FHIR resource, careMESH converts the data into three types of FHIR resources:

 
 
noun_Doctor_1030181.jpg

Practitioner:

Describes an individual person (Physician, Nurse, and support staff) who delivers patient care.

Organization:

A healthcare organization that is involved with the delivery of patient care.  Examples of organization types are: Hospitals, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Physician Groups, etc.

 
 
Webp.net-resizeimage (1).jpg

Location:

A geographic location/facility where patient care is delivered.

 
 

Then we use the Practitioner Role, which is a complex object that describes the relationship between the three resource types, to tie it all together.  The below schematic illustrates the complexity of aggregating trusted data sources to deliver careMESH users with the most comprehensive directory available in the market today.

Querying the Directory

We publish FHIR® standard APIs to allow a user or application to query the directory.  If your organization is using our directory service it is exactly the same API as we use to drive the careMESH Clinical Communications services.  We then make these results available to you and your users in a few ways:

Option 1 - The careMESH User Interface

For users who have not chosen to integrate these capabilities into an EHR or other system, careMESH provides an easy, attractive interface to view directory information in the careMESH website and mobile applications. A sample directory listing is shown here:

We also provide a version of this interface that is rendered on our server that you can easily embed in your websites and applications. Depending on your needs, integration can often be accomplished in under an hour!


Option 2 - The careMESH API

In use cases that are not delivered with the careMESH User Interface, you can use the careMESH FHIR-based API to easily gain access to the careMESH directory from your application. Because our API is FHIR-based, it is easy to access from any environment that can download a web page. Here are a few examples.

A. To find the full name of every “JANE DOE” in California:

 
GET /fhir/r4/Practitioner?given=JANE&family=DOE&address-state=CA&_elements=name
 

B. The response will look like this:

C. Now that we’ve found “JANE DOE”, let’s get everything else.

This next query requires some explanation since it includes three parameters:

  • _type what type of resource type we are searching for (in this case, Practitioner Role)

  • practitioner a search parameter instructing the server to search for practitioner roles referencing our practitioner

  • _include _include=* instructs the serve to include other resources referenced by matching search results (such as Locations and Organizations)

 
GET fhir/r4?_type=PractitionerRole&practitioner=41ba72d8-d116-53e5-9e2b-e8c27f5dcfe7&_include=*
 

D. When we send this query, it returns all sorts of information about this practitioner using a standard FHIR® Bundle.
