Given your interest in patients and families, how satisfied are you with the CCDA as a means for data exchange with patient oriented apps?
Partially satisfied. I would really like to see HL7 standards created that make it possible for the patient to become the custodian of their own data. That’s really only possible if standards for data migration are created that enable a patient to securely pull complete data from all their sources of choice. Those sources would include not just EHRs, but the whole of health information technology. The patient could then choose when and how much to share using other existing standards, such as CCDA, or these new standards.
