Health Level Seven®International (HL7®), the global authority for interoperability and standards in healthcare information technology with members in 55 countries, will present a complimentary Ambassador webinar on the HL7 Clinical Document Architecture Release 2.0 (CDA) and the Continuity of Care Document (CCD) on Friday, July 13, 2012.
The CDA is designed to support the exchange of health information in clinical documentation and the CCD for creating clinical summaries. These specifications were recently named under the federal regulation in the United States to support meaningful use requirements and have also been selected for use in national and regional programs throughout the world. This webinar will explain how the CDA and CCD benefit patients and healthcare providers. It will also assist managers and decision makers involved in the acquisition or development of healthcare IT solutions to understand the business needs met by these HL7 standards. This webinar will also address the newly publishedgreenCDA® Implementation Guide, which maintains the full utility of CDA while making it easier to implement. greenCDA is a simplified XML for CDA templates.
Calvin Beebe, technical specialist at the Mayo Clinic with over 31 years of experience in healthcare information systems design, development and support, will present this webinar. He has been active in HL7 for 12 years and serves as the co-chair of the HL7 Structured Documents Work Group where the CDA and CCD were developed. He is also the co-chair of the Structure and Semantic Design Steering Division of the HL7 Technical Steering Committee.
