The goal of the ASTM CCR Training Workshop is to give developers and
programmers in Health2.0, as well as traditional health IT, a "deep
dive" into the CCR standard, its schema, and current uses of the CCR
for portability and interoperability of health information exchange.
For those who don’t know about the CCR standard, it is an easily
implemented and widely adopted XML schema for capturing a "snapshot" of
a person’s most relevant health information, such as demographics,
diagnoses and problems, medications, allergies, immunizations, family
history, and care plans. It is an open and royalty-free standard
sponsored by numerous physician and medical organizations, including
the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Family
Physicians. Information on the next ASTM CCR Training Workshop can be
found on the home page of www.ccrstandard.com. David C. Kibbe, MD MBA and Steven Waldren, MD are faculty for the one-day workshop.
