DEVELOPMENT BACKGROUND

The Consolidated CDA Templates guide includes new releases for History and Physical (H&P) Note (Release 1.1), where release 1.1 documents supersede existing release 1 publications.

A History and Physical (H&P) Note is a two-part medical report that documents the current and past conditions of the patient. It contains essential information that helps determine an individual's health status. The information forms the basis of most treatment plans. 

 

The project received support from the Health Story Project through an Associate Charter Agreement with HL7 to accelerate development of standards for common types of clinical documents.
