4HL7 CDA® R2 Attachment Implementation Guide: Exchange of C-CDA Based Documents, Release 1 This Guide is intended to be used along with the CDA Implementation Guides for Attachments and provides guidance to implementers as they develop the means for exchanging supporting information. This Guide will serve to direct implementers to the appropriate HL7 implementation standard used to format the content based on the clinical document being exchanged as an Attachment. Refer to the appropriate CDA Implementation Guides for Attachments for additional information regarding levels of constraint, conformance statements, conformance verbs, cardinality, vocabulary conformance, and null flavor. This Guide is independent of the method for exchange (e.g., transport, networking, connectivity, security/privacy). This Guide will refer to healthcare supporting/additional information as Attachments. Produce a series of educational documents/presentations to cover the HL7 Attachments Implentation Guide.a. Detailed walk through of the document i. How to read ii. How to use b. Section 7 conformance statement. c. Section 3.3.1 – need to clarify the body description and what this means. i. nonXMLBody is used when the content is an external file such as a TIFF image, MS RTF document, PDF, etc. (See Table 1 for the complete list).The NonXMLBody class is provided for those applications that can do no more than simply wrap an existing non-XML document with the CDA Header. ii. structuredBody is used when the body will be XML structured content. XML structured content is always inserted into the structuredBody element, never as an external file. The StructuredBody contains one or more Section components. 1. Show example of: a. All HL7 structure b. Structured w/external (PDF as an example) c. Structured with text d. Base64 – i. What does it mean, why and how examples?

HL7 experts will walk through the document required to implement attachments.a. PSS approval: AWG, US Realm, TSC, ArB b. Ballot c. Reconciliation a.
