Medical Emergency Reports (MER): the publishing of a new version of the HL7 CDA R2 specifications

The work to standardize health documents continues as a result of the collaboration initiated between HL7 Italy, AgID and the working groups, set up by the Ministry of Health and the Agency, in which they participate and are coordinated by regional representatives for the creation of the Electronic Health Record.

Therefore, the specifications for the implementation of the clinical document " Medical Emergency Reports - version 1.0" according to the HL7 v.3 standard - CDA Rel. 2 are online.

The objective of this document is to define, according to the HL7 CDA Rel 2.0 standard, an implementation guide for the CDA of the Medical Emergency Reports valid in the Italian context.

The specifications are available on the EHR website at the Documentary Standards page and on the HL7 Italia website.
