CCD stands for Continuity of Care Document. It is a standardized electronic document that offers greater scalability than CCR and is used in healthcare to facilitate the exchange of patient information. The CCD includes essential patient data such as demographics, medical history, medications, allergies, and recent test results. Its purpose is to promote interoperability among different health information systems, ensuring that crucial patient information is accessible and understandable to healthcare providers involved in a patient’s care. The use of CCDs contributes to improved care coordination, reduced medical errors, and enhanced overall continuity of care for patients as they move between various healthcare providers and settings.
