This document provides a guide to implementing the 'logical' model detailed by the Agency's Discharge Summary Structured Document Template as an HL7 Clinical Document Architecture Release 2 (CDA) XML document. The primary aim of the guide is to take implementers step by step through mapping each data component of the structured document template to a corresponding CDA attribute or element. This guide contains descriptions of both constraints on the CDA and, where necessary, custom extensions to the CDA, for the purposes of fulfilling the requirements for Australian implementations of discharge summaries. The resulting CDA document would be used for the electronic exchange of discharge summaries between healthcare providers. In addition, this guide presents conformance requirements against which implementers can attest the conformance of their systems.
