This session provided a practical, easy-to-understand overview of the Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA) implementation guide within the context of the emerging HL7 standard called Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, or FHIR®. It built upon a prior Roundtable focused on the technical aspects of C-CDA documents. (Participants are encouraged to review the previous roundtable because speakers will leverage that knowledge in this presentation.) Learn why FHIR® is a force multiplier for the exchange of clinical C-CDA documents and gain exposure to technical work being done at HL7 to support consistent transformation of structured clinical note information between CDA and FHIR® standards. Speakers share current progress that demonstrates the combined use of C-CDA and FHIR®.
Following this Roundtable, attendees will :
Understand the importance of the document paradigm supported in FHIR®
Compare C-CDA documents and C-CDA on FHIR® documents
Recognize why FHIR® APIs make exchanging information in C-CDA documents easier and better
Discover standard mapping resources to make information transformation between C-CDA and FHIR® more consistent
Appreciate how C-CDA on FHIR® and Document Reference resources support IHE document-sharing models
