The Microsoft Connected Health Platform is a collection of technology offerings that include architecture, design and deployment guidance, tools and solution accelerators for the health industry. CHP assets are built in alignment with the Microsoft Connected Health Platform – Architecture and Design Blueprints, a set of architecture principles and best practices for building e-Health solutions based on open standards and interoperability at the local, regional or national levels.

  • Cross Enterprise Document Registry and Repository (XDS.b) from IHE for enabling document sharing solutions in healthcare
  • The Microsoft Common User Interface which provides User Interface Design Guidance and Toolkit controls that address a wide range of patient safety concerns for healthcare organizations worldwide, enabling a new generation of safer, more usable and compelling health applications to be quickly and easily created
  • The Clinical Documentation Solution Accelerator (CDSA) that enables developers to create clinically encoded XML based documents originating from ready-made templates such as Discharge Summary or a Referral using industry standard formats such as the Health Level 7 (HL7) Clinical Document Architecture (CDA)
