C-CDA Scoring Rubric Process

Process Proposal:

  • Step 1: Implementer identifies a best practice/rubric criterion
  • Step 2: Implementer logs the best practice/rubric on the HL7 Wiki page  documenting the potential criterion
    • Identify  testable components to the criteria
    • Provides unique Rubric id for each criterion*
  • Step 3: The implementer requests to have the issue reviewed in the SDWG meeting during the agenda time
    • Alternatively, SDWG may compile a list of open rubric and discuss
  • Step 4: Reviewed and discussed on a SDWG call. The rubric is voted on and the status of the issue is updated to reflect the outcome of the vote.
  • Step 5: Establish a publishing date for the rubric.
  • Step 6: Publish the approved list of rubric on the HL7 Wiki page following standard HL7 process.
  • Step 7: Establish an effective date to be implemented into tools.


*When implemented into a tool it’s recommended to reference the Rubric ID
