Progress Note

HL7 Implementation Guide for CDA R2
Progress Note
Published September 2010

This project designed a Progress Note in XML as a constraint on HL7 Version 3, Clinical Document Architecture, Release 2.

A Progress Note documents a patient's clinical status during a hospitalization or outpatient visit. The project reviewed current Progress Note usage and examined industry precedents and requirements. It followed the guidance of the HL7 Structured Documents Work Group, domain work groups and the current approach to CDA templates in Continuity of Care Document (CCD) and the Health Story implementation guides (IG).

Within HL7, the project was sponsored by the Structured Documents Work Group.
