CDA R2.1 Project

Welcome to the CDA R2.1 Project Wiki Site. On these pages we will manage the various moving pieces necessary to support development of CDA Release 2.1


  • How do we limit significant changes in CDA R2.1?
    • Guiding principles used to limit the scope of changes to be incorporated into CDA R2.1
      • Are we asserting data types backwards compatibility
      • Supporting changes which are optionally included, so old instances will still process in the new Schema.
    • To limit significant changes, we will following process:
      • Accept omitted attribute inclusion from the RIM
      • Require SDWG committee votes to include additional optional classes to the CDA R2.1
