Hammond Participates in HL7 Strategy Meeting





Dr. Ed Hammond represented Duke on October 21st, 2015 at the HL7 Sponsored Industry Roadmap Meeting in Chicago, IL. Thirty healthcare industry stakeholders were asked to help develop a 5-year industry roadmap to achieve and advance interoperability. The HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA), a standard for document markup of clinical documents, was discussed in detail; HL7 has a 5-year grant to enhance the CDA and refine some of its functionality. Other important topics discussed included Meaningful Use and information exchange between clinical systems. A follow-up meeting is planned for February to continue the efforts.
