Are todayâ€™s CDAÂ® documents fulfilling the vision set by the Health Story Project?
December 11, 2015 by Mark Morsch, Vice President Technology, Optum360
This compelling question was explored by Lisa Nelson, MS, MBA during a recent HIMSS Health Story Project Roundtable . The Health Story Project Â vision is fulfilled by electronic patient records that hold a meaningful and complete health story. But what does that mean for an implementer of Clinical Document Architecture (CDAÂ®)? A provider? A patient? Is the information in electronic health records relevant and pertinent? Is the information accurate? Is it authentic? Lisa and other leaders in the standards and health IT community are asking these critical questions and the answers are prompting the community to examine the possibility for improvements in how standards are being applied.
When examining these questions, definitions are important to help build a common framework for understanding.
