docRegistry is the central document cataloging component of Leafsprout's Digital Health Suite. It acts as a registrar of health records associated with patients in a given geographic region (e.g., state, province, country), belonging to the same health organization/system, or associated with a set of affiliated hospitals/clinics that are sharing clinical information about patients. The registry facilitates discovery of patient data existing anywhere within the region. It utilizes IHE-approved software interfaces and protocols.


  • Regional-level document cataloging service for patients' health records.
  • Compliant with the IHE XDS profile's Document Registry actor.
  • Extends basic features of an XDS Registry with support for multi-patient queries, document metadata updates and deletes, patient identifier changes based on source patient id, etc.
  • Easily aligns with data retention policies mandated by a given jurisdiction. With its built-in support for deletion, including soft and hard deletion, docRegistry can ensure that document entries remain in the system for no less and no more time than legally required.
  • Works with Leafsprout's patientRegistry and other IHE PIX Manager-compliant MPI systems.
  • Can operate without the PIX Manager when a global patient identification scheme has been established and adopted by healthcare enterprises, e.g., a national health number assigned to each person.
  • Implements the IHE Cross Enterprise User Assertion (XUA) profile, facilitating HIEs with federated user identity.
  • Supports user-defined security policies via its built-in XACML Security Policy Enforcement engine. As a result, only the documents that a user is authorized to see are returned in queries.
  • Integrates with external repositories of class/confidentiality/event/format/facility type/practice setting/other codes sanctioned by a given jurisdiction.
  • Highly secured, including encryption, node authentication, and auditing that exceed the requirements of the IHE ATNA Profile.
  • Accompanied by a comprehensive web-based administrative tool.

Technical details:

  • Supports VMware and Hyper-V virtualization environments.
  • Designed for deployments in server farms.
  • Exposes both synchronous and asynchronous Web access points.
