News: C-CDA Award

HealthLX is pleased to announce its selection by HL7 International and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) as runner-up entrant in their C-CDA Rendering Tool Challenge.

HL7's Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA) standard defines structure and semantics for the exchange of clinical documents by healthcare providers and patients.

This challenge aims to alleviate clinician frustration with the usability of C-CDA documents.

While this information is critically important to the delivery of high-quality care and timely decision making, the wide variety and volume of data contained in these documents creates a challenge for clinicians who need to sort through this data effectively and quickly.

To rapidly address this problem, this challenge was created to develop an effective C-CDA viewer which can rapidly optimize the usability of this critical information.

As runner-up in the C-CDA Rendering Tool Challenge, HealthLX is to be awarded $5,000 by HL7 International for its submission.

"I could not be more pleased with the performance of our team" stated HealthLX CEO Will Tesch. "Our team responded to HL7's challenge in 30 days and competed against 45 other entries.”

Our C-CDA viewer entry, "Patient Insight 1.0", addresses improvements in three critical usability areas:

  • Viewing and interacting with large amounts of CCD information
  • Viewing multiple source schemas (EHR specific, standard, and nonstandard schemas) in one programmatic interface
  • Create the resulting solution with open source technology.

As a result, CCD information can be of much higher value to clinicians and care managers in delivering care to patients and members from both quality and time perspectives.

HealthLX will be including “Patient Insight 1.0” as an important care management addition to its HealthLX Healthcare Service Bus (HSB) integration and data management solution and will issue a separate press release regarding its availability.
