C-CDA Direct Messaging – Are We There Yet?

In 2012, Baylor Scott and White Health – North Texas Division began the journey of implementing a process to create and exchange a Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA) document in an effort to improve patient care coordination, patient outcomes and patient safety across the care continuum as well as to meet Meaningful Use requirements (then ‘Stage 2’) to electronically exchange patient information. The presentation discusses a real life C-CDA implementation story that demonstrate direct impact on the organization and patient care from the viewpoint of the implementation teams, clinicians and staff’s unique experiences. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify pre-implementation considerations and potential challenges to implementing inbound/outbound direct messaging of C-CDA visit summaries.
  • Discover methods of C-CDA data exchange for outbound direct messaging of C-CDA documents.
  • Learn about the benefits of implementing inbound/outbound direct messaging of C-CDA documents.

Background: In 2008, the Health Story Project joined forces with Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise USA (IHE USA) and the Office of the National Coordinator's Standards & Interoperability Framework to harmonize their work to produce the Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA) cited in Meaningful Use Stage 2. C-CDA is now the core of the United States' national agenda for interoperability.
