What is Green CDA?
How do you use it?
• Green CDA is a way of interfacing applications to standard
CDA
• It consists of:
– An intermediate XML structure which is much simpler than full
CDA (this structure is called Green CDA XML)
– Supplied transforms, to convert the simple XML to full CDA, or
full CDA to the simple XML
• Transforms depend on templates
• Interface your application to the simple XML; then use the
supplied transforms to read or write full CDA.
• Get ITK accreditation for the full CDA
• Short-cuts the technical complexity of CDA
• Avoids a long CDA learning curve
Green CDA XML is Simpler than
Standard CDA XML

• Reliable transforms to full CDA are supplied; (but may need to be extended for your
application requirements, commercially or using Open Source tools)
• Transforms can be deployed as XSLT (licenced), or as a Java runtime engine (Open Source)
• You only need to interface applications to Green CDA
• This is a simple ‘vanilla XML’ interfacing job
History of Green CDA
• Experiments with ‘simplified XML ITS’ in UK (2006) – automated
transforms to full XML ITS; not taken up by HL7 International.
• ‘Green CDA’ implementation technique proposed by HL7 Structured Docs
Working Group (2010):
–
–
–
–
Transforms only go one way: Green => full CDA
Transforms written by hand or low-level mapping tools (so unreliable)
SDWG published the method only, few transforms
See HL7 wiki for current status
• Promoted by HL7 International as an implementation method (CCD vs CCR
for Meaningful Use?)
• Development of Green CDAs for ITK with reliable, automated, two-way
transforms – UK (2011).
Example Green CDA – ITK PHMR
• Personal Health Monitoring Report – for telehealth devices in the home
• DHID published CDA definition in summer 2012
• Green CDA version developed shortly afterwards; now in use on one ISCF
project
• Templates included so far:
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
Header templates (Patient, etc.)
Device definitions
Blood pressure series
Blood glucose series
Oxygen saturation series
Pulse Rate series
Thresholds and target values for these observations
• Other templates can be easily included
• Full round-trip transforms, 100% accurate (demo)
• Full PHMR passes ITK CDA checker (demo)

• The round trip (full=>green=> full) is 100% accurate
• Easily and automatically testable
• Implemented in Java or XSLT

ITK Green CDAs Available
• There are Green versions of the following ITK CDAs:
–
–
–
–
–
Non-Coded Document
Discharge Summary
Section 2 / Section 5 Discharge (actually V3)
CAF (for HSCI)
PHMR (telehealth)
• These can pass the ITK CDA checker and TKW now
• Extra templates are easily added
• Extensions for further application requirements are
commercially available, or can be built with Open
Source tools
• XSLT transforms licensed commercially
Green CDA in ISCF
The following projects in the Information Sharing Challenge Fund
are using Green CDA to implement ITK CDA:
Trust

Foundation Trust
Use of discharge letters for Out of
Hours care; stored in XDS (IHE)
repository
Central London
Telehealth monitoring and alerts
Community Healthcare for COPD

Additional Topics
•
CDA Rendered Text Entries – how do you handle them?
–
–
–
–
•
Investigate the requirement very carefully
ITK-supplied transforms render header data
Some text is free-standing, not related to coded entries
Additional hand-coded transforms can generate HTML tables from coded entries
Mapping and transforming CDA to other XML, V2, etc.
– Making mappings is quicker than writing interface code
– Generates translations to CDA in both directions
– Open Source tools available (Eclipse based)
•
Generated Java CDA API
– Simple classes and getter/setter methods for Green CDA fields
– API can read or write full CDA
– Open Source tools available (Eclipse)
•
CDA Editor/Viewer
–
–
–
–
–
Green CDA fields are just those a clinician may need to edit
Web-based, automatically generated editor
Configurable user interface
Outputs or reads full CDA
Open Source tools available (Eclipse)
