HL7 delivers healthcare interoperability standards

ITK2 Released

21 September 2011

In July the Department of Health released version 2 of its interoperability toolkit (ITK2). A key focus of this release was to lay the groundwork for clinical document exchange. 

On 16 September 2011 the NHS Interoperability Toolkit (ITK) Release 2 was updated to include a new sub-pack - NHS Interoperability Toolkit CDA Functional Requirements. This contains the requirements for systems sending or receiving messages containing NHS Connecting for Health published message specifications for CDA Documents (e.g. Discharge, OutPatient, A&E, OOH and Ambulance Reports). It covers the handling of CDA Documents by clinical applications and the processing and transmission of these by Message Handling Systems between parties over a variety of transports.
