HL7 Version 3 Implementation Guide: Virtual Medical Record for Clinical Decision Support (vMR-CDS) for GELLO, Release 1

DESCRIPTION

A Virtual Medical Record (vMR) is a data model for representing the data that are analyzed and/or produced by clinical decision support (CDS) engines.  The goal of this project is to define HL7 vMR data models capable of supporting scalable, interoperable CDS.  This specification provides guidance on the use of the vMR in conjunction with the HL7 GELLO standard.  It is derived from the vMR Domain Analysis Model (DAM).
