Guidance for developers: Structured Headings HL7v3 Clinical Document Architecture

The generic Structured Headings Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) model is a large “CDA Refined Message Information Model (RMIM)” that can be used as the basis to create specific profiles.

It consists of:

  • Common CDA Header
  • Common Library of CDA Sections (PRSB, plus others)
  • Common Library of CDA Coded Entries (PRSB assured plus other legacy ones)

The generic Structured Headings CDA model itself is not meant for implementation, but is constrained by a profile specification that allows the model to be constrained to specific use cases. This profile specification is rule based and consists of a series of assertions against the base model, for example this details which section can or cannot be present, which coded entries can or cannot be present, and so on.
