Template Database Now Open Source

The Lantana Consulting Group is proud to release our Template Database (TDB) as open source software under the Eclipse Public License. The TDB stores CDA templates, which are reusable sets of constraints on the base standard, and form the basis of the many CDA implementation guides that are published by HL7, IHE, and HITSP.
Our hope is that this release will foster the development of multiple tooling options for constraining CDA, and eventually result in the development of a standard template exchange format for representing templates between tools. We are currently applying for membership to the Open Health Tools project, and we plan to host the database there once our membership has been approved. In the mean time, please take a look at what we have posted on our own site, and send any comments you might have to our contact page.
