Summary:

For more information regarding CDA Guideline Validation, visit:

NIST in collaboration with Alschuler Associates, LLC, Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) and the CCHIT Health IT Collaboration Effort "LAIKA", is working on a series of testing tools for promoting the adoption of standards-based interoperability by vendors and users of healthcare information systems.

Description:

The testing tools are designed to be used by HIT developers and implementers during the development of software that implements CDA/CCD-based specifications. These tools can be used for self-testing to determine if an XML instance document is correct with respect to the specifications identified within the following HITSP constructs.

  • C37: Lab Report Document
  • C32: HITSP Summary Documents Using HL7 CCD (formerly known as Registration and Medication History)
  • C28: Emergency Encounter Summary Document Component

The schematron rules used for HL7 Continuity of Care Document (CCD) are available at the HL7 Wiki. All other schematron files are available at: http://xreg2.nist.gov/cda-validation/.
