SHR Standards links and suggestion

Hi all,

Thanks for the great discussion that we had on the SHR community call yesterday. I think it was very useful. It seems like the use of CDA and XDS could work for us.

I wanted to include some useful links that I have been reading about IHE CDA profiles. It seems that the profiles for CDA that we will be interested in are found in the Patient Care Coordination Technical Framework and there are a number of different use cases that are supported:

We could enable these to be stored in the same data model in OpenMRS so that data can be submitted and queried using either mechanism.

What do others think of this?

I will schedule some time within Jembi to start exploring the CDA SHR prototyping as we discussed. I think this will be very informative.
