The Chicago-based HIMSS Electronic Health Record Vendors Association (EHRVA) has released its Quick Start Guide for the ASTM/HL7 Continuity of Care Document (CCD) standard.
The association developed the guide, which is available at no charge on the EHRVA Web site, as a resource to help hasten interoperability in healthcare. To educate interested users of the guide, HIMSS and the EHRVA will provide instructional materials both online and through teleconferences.
Announced in February 2007, the Continuity of Care Document represents collaboration between HL7 and ASTM International, two standards development organizations.
