Straw Poll: Choice of a CDA packaging specification

July 27, 2011

One of the more difficult issues facing the NEHTA CTI team is what to choose for a technical CDA packaging strategy. We need a coherent strategy because CDA documents have assorted attachments. These attachments can include things like:

  • Images
  • Alternative document format representations (such as pdf / rtf)
  • Digital Signatures

The CDA specification itself says (section 3) that when a CDA document is transferred from one place to another, all components of a CDA document must be able to be included in a single exchange package, including if the transfer is across a firewall, and that there is no need to change any of the references in the CDA document.

----- End Extract.

If this is your expertise please respond.
