HL7 FHIR® Implementation Guide: Structured Data Capture (SDC), Release 3

DESCRIPTION

This implementation guide is intended to support clinical systems in the creation and population of forms in the healthcare domain. It refines and expands the content in the base FHIR specification to provide additional guidance on: 

  • workflows related to form authoring and completion 
  • how to manage the rendering of forms 
  • how to control form behavior 
  • how to automatically populate answers within a form 
  • how to extract information from a completed form 
  • how to work with modular forms and data dictionaries 
  • how to work with adaptive forms.

ALTERNATIVE NAMES

HL7 FHIR® Implementation Guide: Structured Data Capture (SDC), Release 3 may also go by the following names or acronyms:

"HL7 FHIR® IG: Structured Data Capture (SDC), R3", "HL7 FHIR® IG: Structured Data Capture (SDC), Release 1", , SDC

BENEFITS

  • Provides guidance on how to use Questionnaire and QuestionnaireResponse to handle the complexities that appear in real-world forms
  • Simplifies user experience of filling out forms by allowing re-use of existing data and automating the flow of completion so that users only see the questions and answers relevant to them
  • Allows data collected using Questionnaire responses to be more easily integrated into the rest of the FHIR ecosystem
  • Provides a platform for consistent interoperability with FHIR Questionnaires where other implementation guides can narrow to reflect their own requirements and capabilities.
