This document provides a guide to implementing the 'logical' model detailed by the Agency's Specialist Letter Structured Content Specification 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 the mapping of each data component of the structured content specification to a corresponding CDA attribute or element. The resulting CDA document would be used for the electronic exchange of specialist letters between healthcare providers. This guide also presents conformance requirements, against which implementers can attest the conformance of their systems.
