Update on the OHIE clinical demo data generation work.

My task was to take data collected from the RHIE forms, and transform them into CDA documents that could be consumed by OHIE 1.0.
I've built APHP documents to export vital signs / physical exams etc.

Two of the forms deal with administrative encounter details - referrals and referral confirmations. How would we represent this data using CDA? I do think that this is information that we'd need to see reflected in our demo data.

Some of the code sets that we used for RHIE don't really match with IHE profiles. Should I switch the RHIE based codes into appropriate LOINC codes so that they fit into the IHE compliant CDA documents?

Thanks and best regards,

Hi Suranga,

I can't be of much help with the first question but for the second one, I think you should change the codes to those used in the CDA profile so that we are conformant with the profile. It would be a process of matching the data we are currently storing in RHIE into the correct structures in the profiled CDA.
