Australian Organ Donor Register - CDA Implementation Guide v1.1.1

This document provides a guide to implementing the logical model detailed by the Agency's Australian Organ Donor Register Structured Content Specification as an HL7 Clinical Document Architecture Release 2 (CDA) XML document. This guide is based on version 1.1.1 of the structured content specification.
The primary aim of the guide is to take implementers step by step through mapping each data component of the structured content specification to a corresponding CDA attribute or element. The 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 a Australian Organ Donor Register. The resulting CDA document can be used for the electronic exchange of Australian Organ Donor Registers between healthcare providers.
