February 2017 Health Story Project Roundtable: C-CDA Documents: Building Blocks for Meaningful Exchange

Virtual Event

Feb 6, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm EST
Virtual Event

While C-CDA (Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture) is regularly used in data exchange across the health IT community, the various types of C-CDA documents available for exchange are not well understood. This Roundtable will describe the 12 document types defined in C-CDA, highlight the similarities and differences of the sections within those documents, and show how C-CDA document and section templates can be leveraged as building blocks for more meaningful data exchange. Health Story Project members Lisa Nelson and Laura Bryan will trace the evolution of these document types and their intended purposes. Patty Lewis of Coastal Connect HIE, Christine Perfili with the Utah Department of Health, and Shan He from Intermountain Healthcare will provide real-world examples showing how various types of C-CDA documents are being used to benefit health information exchange and how these organizations leverage different document formats.
