1 Clinical Document Architecture: Care Record Summaries Liora Alschuler alschuler.spinosa Co-chair, Structured Documents TC Co-editor, CDA HL7 Board of Directors Liora Alschuler

2 Health Level Seven (HL7.org) Standards Development Organization Developing standards for interoperability Patient care Public health Clinical trials Reimbursement HIPAA DSMO 20 years, 2000 members 26 international affiliates A model community: building standards to a single information model

3 Clinical Document Architecture ANSI/HL7 CDA R CDA R2.0 to be published shortly created & maintained by HL7 Structured Documents Technical Committee (SDTC) A specification for document exchange using XML, the HL7 Reference Information Model (RIM) Version 3 methodology and vocabulary (SNOMED, ICD, local,…) CDA

4 CDA: A Document Exchange Specification This is a CDA and this

5 CDA Release 2: Text + Observation Past Medical History Patiënt met een voorgeschiedenis astma en hoge bloeddruk. Nu opgenomen in het ziekenhuis met een osteoartritis, rechter knie

6 HL7 18 HL7 CDA R2 HL7

7 CDA Widely implemented outside the US most common application is transfer of care (Germany, Greece, Finland, Japan, Korea, Canada, Argentina) CDA transfer of care pilot in British Columbia (see CDA Implementation Guide for Vancouver Island Health Authority on SDTC web page) In the US CDA considered for HIPAA Claims Attachments (as payload in X12 message) Mayo: ramping up to 50,000 notes/week: investment in information as capital asset Columbia-Presbyterian: text and fielded data entry with natural language processing and controlled vocabulary Tricare Management Activity (DoD TMA) will implement CDA attachments supporting referrals management

8 CDA Specification is generic Any document type Any clinical content Human-readable narrative block Defines legal content Displays with simple style sheet Required Machine-readable clinical statements Drives automated extraction, decision support…. Uses HL7 RIM, controlled vocabulary Optional

9 CDA Body: Human-readable paragraph list table caption link content revise (delete/insert) subscript/superscript special characters (e.g., symbols, Greek letters) in Unicode emphasis line break renderMultiMedia (non-XML graphics, video…) required

10 CDA Body: Machine Processible Clinical statement Observation Procedure Organizer Supply Encounter Substance Administration Observation Media Region Of Interest Act Optional

11 Creating CDA Document Types Add constraints to generic specification Designed for a community of users Scope: US Clinical applications: transfer of care Can be further specialized for closer communities Scope: Massachusetts Clinical application: pediatric Document coded to requirements of the document type Still valid against generic schema and specification

12 Validating CDA document types.xml CRS prose.xsd XPath validation of Implementation Guide requirements Validates against generic schema

.xPath,.xsl, Schematron

13 CDA & Incremental Semantic Interoperability Patients transfer between providers with vastly different IT capabilities Need to support information requirements at point of care Full EMR adoption… not predictable based on past adoption curves Assume gradually rising, but still heterogeneous levels of sophistication Data formats (imaging, text, XML) Coded data (metadata, basic structure, simple results reporting, complex clinical statements)

14 CDA & Incremental Semantic Interoperability Level 1: standardizes just the metadata (header) required for management Query, retrieve, file, track Full clinical content, but no coding requirements Target authoring: any (including imaging, fax) Level 2: Level 1 + standard structures (section, list, table titles) Clinical domain-specific Supports basic extraction, summary Target authoring: dictation, electronic text with template or minimal consistent structure

15 CDA & Incremental Semantic Interoperability Level 1: just the metadata (header) Level 2: Level 1 + structures Level 3: Level 2 + clinical statements (coded for machine processing) Expressive to full extent of Reference Information Model and vocabulary Target authoring: EMR, forms entry, natural language processing Many actual levels between these benchmarks A document can always exceed the required level of encoding

16 Clinical content invariant, regardless of level Level 1: non-XML body Level 1: XML, no codes Level 2: XML, section codes

17 Lets take a look…

18 Implementation Guides constrain coding Not presentation Not narrative style Identical required section coding Different optional narrative coding Two styles of presentation, one Implementation Guide

19 Implementation Guides constrain coding Not presentation Not narrative style Can impose uniform presentation, style but just for presentation the coding drives machine processing Distinction becomes more significant with Level 3
