Anatomic Pathology Work Group
20111102 This status is in process of being updated
The Pathology Special Interest Group is in ramp-up stage. There is a sizable group of people who believe that the time is ripe for a CDA based standard for Surgical Pathology reports, and that we will also need to maintain a migration path to HL7 v2 based messaging. This will be the goal for the first standard.
The vision would be to have an interoperable surg path report standard implemented by most major pathology system vendors by the end of 2007. That means we should have a pilot in fall 2007 (APIII venue?). The scope and depth of the specification would be the normal free text report, with required structured data elements for basic specimen description as well as the College of American Pathologists' (CAP) "protocols" of synoptic report data, as structured data elements.
