The International Patient Summary

The initiative to develop the International Patient Summary (IPS) standard, is based on the European Guideline for the cross-border exchange of patient summary data. This resulted in the formal publication of EN 17269 in November 2019. From the beginning, it has been our intention to develop the IPS as a global standard, which is why we submitted our work on the IPS to ISO as well. This led to the publication of ISO 27269 IPS standard in April 2021.

This has been referenced from the information on the International Patient Summary.  For more information about this standard, please see the eHealth standards on IPS here.
