In 2014, the industry will see wide-scale production and exchange of Consolidated CDA documents among healthcare providers. Indeed, live production of C-CDAs is already underway for anyone using a Meaningful Use 2014 certified EHR. C-CDA documents fuel several aspects of meaningful use, including transitions of care and patient-facing download and transmission.
SMART Platforms Project is an ONC-funded research project at Harvard Medical School/Boston Children’s Hospital. SMART and Lantana Consulting Group collaborated with EMR/HIE vendors to perform a detailed review of vendors’ Meaningful Use Stage 2 Consolidated-CDA documents.
