What is CCOW?

The HL7 CCOW (Clinical Context Object Workgroup) Standard is vendor independent and allows clinical applications to share information at the point of care.

Using a technique called "context management", CCOW provides the clinician with a unified view on the information held in separate and disparate healthcare applications referring to the same patient, encounter or user.  This means that when a clinician signs on to one application within the group of disparate applications tied together by the CCOW environment, that same sign-on is simultaneously executed on all other applications within the group.  Similarly, when the clinician selects a patient, the same patient is selected in all the applications.  CCOW then builds a combined view of the patient on one screen.

CCOW works for both client-server and web-based applications.  The acronym CCOW stands for "Clinical Context Object Workgroup", a reference to the standards committee within the HL7 group that developed the standard.  Read more in HL7 CCOW Books and Guides. CCOW
