HL7 Informative Document: C-CDA Rubric Criteria, Release 1 - US Realm
This informative implementation guide contains rubric criteria created through an ongoing project in the HL7 Structured Documents Work Group (SDWG), originating in 2016. Throughout 2018 a group of HL7 members created a new set of rubrics to add to the original rubric. This project identified key problem areas in real system-generated C-CDA documents where similar data was consistently misrepresented or incomplete. Variably constructed data removes the ability to share and compare data reliably, adversely impacting interoperability. The rubric criteria indicate where the implementation community, using the C-CDA standard, has agreed the constraints need to be improved in order to support a greater degree of interoperability. The guide describes the rubrics in prose that facilitate the encoding of testable rules in tooling.
HL7 Informative Document: C-CDA Rubric Criteria, Release 1 - US Realm may also go by the following names or acronyms:
- Promotes the expansion of nationwide interoperability by allowing providers and health IT developers to identify inconsistencies in data representation in C-CDA documents and proactively adopt tighter constraints to eliminate the variability using these rubric.
- Enables C-CDA quality assessment tooling built based on these criteria to support the expansion of useful nationwide interoperability.
