The use of CDA in the UK context

Tuesday 6th December 2005

As the National Programme continues to develop there is an increase in awareness of the need for local record systems to run in support of national spine systems and it seems there may be an argument for looking more closely at CDA system in a UK context. As a result HL7-UK is hosting an exploratory meeting for anyone interested in CDA.
