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.
