HL7 CDA® R2 Implementation Guide: Ambulatory and Hospital Healthcare Provider Reporting to Birth Defect Registries Release 1 , STU 2 -US Realm

DESCRIPTION

More than 40 US states have population based birth defect surveillance programs.  Many have mandated requirements for health care professionals to report to the surveillance program.  However, to-date a standard for electronically extracting birth defect reports from electronic health records does not exist.  The intent of this implementation guide is to standardize ambulatory care reporting to birth defect registries.
