Continuity of Care Document (CCD) Quick Start Guide
The Continuity of Care Document Quick Start Guide (QSG) is provided free of charge by EHR Association, as a service to vendors and others who will be implementing healthcare documents based on the CCD Implementation Guide. EHR Association’s goal is to accelerate implementation of this standard which is endorsed by HIMSS, integral to several key HITSP interoperability specifications and IHE content profiles, and is expected to be required for CCHIT certification.
The EHR Association Interoperability Roadmap supports the national goal of interoperable electronic health records and provides a pragmatic, logical plan that will succeed when adopted and implemented by key stakeholders. We provide this Roadmap to mobilize the leadership of healthcare organizations, information technology vendors and other relevant stakeholders to collectively deliver on the vision by incorporating this Roadmap into their plans.
Comments and questions on the Interoperability Roadmap are welcome. They should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CDA/CRS Quick Start Guide provides directives for managing clinical content in order to establish healthcare information interoperability. The Guide was developed by Alschuler Associates, LLC, a consulting firm that also worked with the EHR Association on the Quick Start Guide for Simple CDA Release 2.0 Documents.
