Description

When seeking information, providers can access multiple Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) documents for a single patient encompassing various encounters and medical history recorded in different information systems. It can be cumbersome for providers to search documents which can be duplicated or even conflicted. We describe an approach that reduces patient-level data across multiple CDAs for viewing or analytics. We further describe an evaluation of a system designed using the approach, including impact on workflow.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify the challenges inherent when exchanging multiple CDA documents for a patient across multiple facilities within a health system or community
  • Describe the results of an evaluation of a system designed to consolidate data within multiple Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) Documents for a single patient
  • Propose solutions for addressing outstanding issues in resolving conflicting information in CDA documents received from multiple facilities within a health system or community
