Training Courses / Course Detail
This 1-day ASTM International workshop will provide an in-depth look at the current and future states of technology standards for health data exchange, focusing on the use of the CCR standard for portability and interoperable exchange between EHRs and PHRs, health plans and physicians' practices, and employer-sponsored personal health networks services. The Workshop will include presentation and discussion of the likely uses of the CCR standard by employer-led PHR initiatives and IT firms eager to enter health care with new consumer products and services.
The Workshop will cover the CCR standard's content and schema (xsd) in detail, and will provide comprehensive examples of tools and methods for mapping clinical content from any organization's health data application to the CCR standard's xml format.
Google has expressed interest in the CCR standard for its Google Health Services, and the workshop will include an opportunity to explore the AuthSub technology that Google is suggesting for secure health exchange (see notes by Adam Bosworth, Google VP, online at http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2007/05/putting-health-into-patients-hands.html
This is a must-attend workshop for professionals needing a comprehensive and hands-on understanding of the CCR standard and its XML schema for their organizations. It is aimed at technologists wanting to grasp the relationship between the CCR standard and other emerging standards and best practices, among them the CDA CCD from Health Level Seven and the exciting new PDF-Healthcare best practices.
