Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) is an XML-based standard for encoding clinical documents for easy data exchange.
Each segment of an HL7 message consists of one or more composites (also known as fields). By default, the | (pipe) character is used to separate one composite from another.
A composite can be a primitive data type (such as a character string or a number), or can contain other composites.
If a composite contains other composites, these sub-composites (or sub-fields) are normally separated by ^ characters.
An integration engine (and seriously, let’s stop calling it an interface engine. it does so much more) is an essential piece of healthcare’s technology infrastructure.
Today, during this unprecedented global pandemic we need a highly reliable solution to integrate our data seamlessly.
