It is used for identifying patients based on their demographic data and for the correlation of their IDs across different ID domains.
I-EHR IS - Integrated Electronic Health Record Indexing System
Enables the linking of distributed EHR segments through a hierarchical indexing model.
TS - Terminology Service
