The HL7 Patient Record Architecture (PRA) Proposal. The
HL7 Patient Record Proposal describes a method in which electronic
healthcare records (EHR) can be created, exchanged, and processed using XML. This draft is
the product of the Kona Editorial Group (KEG) under charter from the HL7 SGML/XML SIG. It
was originally presented at the 1998 Plenary meeting in San Diego (see 9/98 PRA.) Linked documents include the current draft
of the Level One architectural DTD and the header DTD. A ballot proposal package will be presented to the
SIG and, if approved, to the TSC at the 1999 plenary meeting in Atlanta.
NOTE: The PRA framework document was last
updated on August 3, 1999. This document and the related DTDs will continue to undergo
frequent revision between now and the plenary sessions. Portions of this document have
been reviewed by the KEG and represent KEG concensus; other portions, specifically the
Part II, Header and articulation of goals for Levels 2 & 3 have not undergone the full
KEG concensus process. Nevertheless, this document represents considerable
refinement over previous drafts.
Architecture Proposal. [This proposal is outdated. A draft of the first part of a
newer version is now known as the HL7 Patient Record
Proposal]. The Kona Proposal describes a method in which electronic healthcare records
(EHR) can be created, exchanged, and processed using SGML, Standard Generalized Markup
Language, ISO 8879:1986.
Merging OO Design and
SGML/XML Architectures (June '98) A DRAFT document which describes a formal method for
mapping the RIM to SGML/XML and links to the RIM converted to SGML and automated tools for
derivation and validation of doctypes (DTDs) from the RIM
Basic SGML. An introduction. Anyone who knows a little about tagging (such as minimal HTML
concepts) should find this to be an easy introduction.
A Gentle Introduction to SGML. A very nice 24-page introduction to the technical aspects of SGML, prepared by
the Text Encoding Initiative. Has enough content to allow one to learn to create DTDs and
