Public Health Project List


Overview

The data collected by Public Health registries is an important source of information for making Public Health decisions regarding programs and resource allocations. HL7 has developed a number of artifacts which support this interoperability

National Health Care Surveys (CDA)

Project Description

The goal of this project is to develop an HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) Implementation Guide for representing data extracted from provider systems as required by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics (CDC/NCHS) for the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) and the National Hospital Care Survey (NHCS).

CDA Reporting to Central Cancer Registries

Project Description

This project facilitates the development of systems that allow for automated transmission of patient-centric cancer case data from ambulatory healthcare providers' EHRs to public health central cancer registries. It contains the specifications for identifying reportable cancers, describes the standard HL7 CDA R2 format and structure of the data elements to be retrieved from the EHR to produce the cancer event report, and indicates when a cancer event report must be transmitted.

Healthcare Associated Infections CDA Reporting

Project Description

The CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is being used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and 30 states plus the District of Columbia as the technical infrastructure by which they obtain healthcare-associated infection and quality measure data. Currently, more than 12,000 facilities are reporting data into NHSN. This project revises existing reports and adds new ones to collect data that are relevant to CDC's surveillance plan.

This project is led by the Structured Documents Work Group.
