3a. Project Scope
Combine, harmonize design for, and re-ballot the CDA Document Templates published in the Periodontal and Orthodontic Attachment Implementation Guides as a single implementation guide. This guide is to convey information about substantiating claims for periodontal and orthodontic related services. The items defined for electronic supporting documentation were developed by the Standards Committee on Dental Informatics of the American Dental Association standard 1079. This guide will include template definitions needed to support both the Periodontal and Orthodontic Attachments (with coded content).
3b. Project Need
The American Dental Association and dental providers have a business need for computable electronic orthodontic and periodontal attachments. These attachment allow payers to improve automation of processing attachments provided to substantiate claims. Implementers will benefit from having definitions for the two attachments be architecturally aligned, and published in a single shared implementation guide.

This project requires meeting the CDA IG quality criteria established by the CDA Management Group and the Trifolia modeling / publishing tool. The implementation will be based on C-CDA R2.1, the Periodontal Attachment Implementation Guide, and the Orthodontic Attachment Implementation Guide (to be published early summer 2019)
Replace in entirety both the Periodontal Attachment IG published July 20, 2017 (http://www.hl7.org/implement/standards/product_brief.cfm?product_id=459), and the Orthodontic Attachment IG anticipated to be published July 2019.
