There is an interesting blog post made by Chilmark Research, a healthcare industry analyst firm, which is very relevant to the current discussion on CCD (HL7 Continuity of Care Document) vs. CCR (Continuity of Care Record). Their post is entitled CCD Standard Gaining Traction, CCR Fading. Other than Google Health, HL7 CCD seems to be the most requested approach. (Google Health’s data specification is based on CCR.)
According to their blog post:
“Today, CCD is seen as a more flexible standard that is not nearly as prescriptive as CCR.”
Chilmark Research’s post is a quick read, and it is very relevant to our poll and the discussion taking place on these two healthcare standards.
