SAFER-5 System Interfaces

SAFER-5 System Interfaces

A Resource Developed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology

The System Interfaces SAFER Guide identifies recommended safety practices intended to optimize the safety and safe use of system-to-system interfaces between EHR-related software applications. Many healthcare organizations are involved in planning, implementing, or maintaining enterprise- or community-wide clinical information systems that require integration.

Such integration occurs most often via interfaces between software applications, often from different system developers. These interfaces send and receive information, enabling disparate systems to operate on the same data.
