New ITS Sample Collapsing Approach
The following are example of the reshaping and abstract serialization approach proposed in the New ITS project
An example of flattening for the Orders Model
A document showing the abstract serialization and reshaping of a laboratory message from the UK profile which is available in the HL7 May ballot pack, and is a true constraint of the corresponding universal model.
Another document has been created that shows the same process being applied to the medication management messages from the NHS message implementation manual v5.5. The download is available under the "Implementation" heading on the 2nd page that is linked below.
A document will follow that will propose some rules for the reshaping of messages. The examples posted on this page will be updated to reflect the rules.
