Health Story Project Builds on Accomplishment of Consolidated CDA

Health Story Project Builds on Accomplishment of Consolidated CDA | #HITsm | Scoop.it
By David Raths

Standards group adds focus on patient-authored documents

“Our motto is get the data flowing,” Joy Kuhl told me in an interview last week. And the Health Story Project, of which Kuhl is executive director, is doing just that. Besides helping EHR vendors adopt and test Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) implementation, the nonprofit organization is adding a focus on patient-authored documents.

Formed five years ago, the collaborative of over two dozen healthcare vendors, providers and associations has made a significant contribution to the interoperability movement by focusing on clinical information that is not always available in an accessible format in an EHR, such as History and Physical, Discharge Summary, Diagnostic Imaging Report, and Procedure Note.

“The members realized that the industry is sitting on massive amounts of clinical documents, and the question was how to get that information into structured data,” Kuhl said. Health Story accelerates development of HL7 CDA implementation guides for common types of clinical documents, brings them through the HL7 ballot process and promotes their adoption within the industry.

Answer to 20 Questions #6: Optionality vs Extensiblity from Grahame Grieve

If 2 applications don’t share the same set of use cases, then there won’t be any interoperability between them, or it will be fitful – like pasting content between word and a browser and vice versa – it kind of sorta works. Most of the time, but you’ll often have to manually fix it for things that didn’t work how you wanted it to. In these cases, the choice of optionality vs extensibility is moving deck chairs around on the titanic, and there’s not much you can do. Read more...
