Interoperable Imaging Wisdom on the Way

DICOM (Rosslyn, Va.) and HL7 (Ann Arbor, Mich.) will bring to ballot two documents that describe how to create interoperable imaging reports using implementation guides from the Health Level Seven (HL7) Clinical Document Architecture (CDA)

The vote will take place in the first quarter of 2008, says Pittsburgh-based M*Modal, a member of the project.

The first of the implementation guides describes how to transform DICOM Structured Reports in CDA; the second describes how to create a compatible CDA for diagnostic imaging directly through dictation/transcription or structured entry. The "CDA for Common Document Types" (CDA4CDT) project will donate technical, editorial and logistic support for the CDA implementation guide.

This CDA4CDT project was initiated by M*Modal, AHIMA and AHDI. Spheris, MedQuist, InterFix, Precyse Solutions, Webmedx, MDinTouch, 3M and ImageTek are project benefactors and Acusis is a project sponsor. Also supporting the effort through volunteer participation are GE Healthcare, Kaiser Permanente, Mayo Clinical, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the Military Health System. Alschuler Associates, LLC, is assuming primary responsibility for IG and collateral development.
