This course takes a detailed look at the process of understanding both the HL7 v2 content and the relevant CDA Implementation guide, understanding how the content is converted, and how to produce mapping specifications and working conversion modules, with a particular focus on examples.
The V2 to CDA Mapping course offers the following key features:
- How to navigate around NEHTA specifications
