HL7 Implementation Guide for CDA® R2: Progress Note
A Progress Note documents a patient’s clinical status during a hospitalization or outpatient visit, thus is associated with an encounter. The method used to develop the HL7 Implementation Guide for CDA Release 2: Progress Note, Release 1 (US Realm) included a review of industry precedents and requirements. The Progress Note is built on CDA templates as the reusable unit of standards-based exchange and interoperability.
HL7 Implementation Guide for CDA® R2: Progress Note may also go by the following names or acronyms:
- Healthcare Providers,
- Healthcare IT Vendors,
- EHR Systems,
- Transcription/Dictation Systems,
- Departmental Systems
- Integrating narrative notes and the EHR is a key benefit as is the fact that it supports meaningful use of electronic medical record technology with minimal change to current practice.
- The audience for this document includes software developers, consultants, and clinicians responsible for implementation of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, Personal Health Record (PHR) systems, dictation/transcription systems, and document management applications, and local, regional, and national health information exchange networks that wish to create and/or process CDA documents developed according to this specification.
Progress Note (Release 1.1) documents contained in the CDA Consolidation Guide supersede existing release 1 publications.
