Let’s Improve the C-CDA Together!
The Sequoia Project knows data exchange is just the beginning for successful health data sharing. We are also committed to ensuring the content of those data exchanges is both accurate and useful to providers and patients. In 2016, the Testing Workgroup developed an enhanced content testing program, focused around a common set of requirements and testing tools, to improve the quality and completeness of Continuity of Care Document (CCD) exchanges. In addition, the eHealth Exchange completed a 3-month content testing pilot to help to verify that the refined test cases will address the needs of the eHealth Exchange Participants.
The approved Enhanced Content Testing Program documentation went into effect on 1/10/17 and the documentation will be updated to reflect final comments that have been received.
What happens next?
The eHealth Exchange Enhanced Content Testing Program is in the final stages of being implemented. We are in the final stages of vetting the new content testing tools that will be utilized by all Participants and will schedule a webinar to demonstrate the tooling. Finally, the eHealth Exchange Validation Plan has been updated to reflect the approved content testing policy.
