End Of Life - Clinical document architecture on FHIR
The CDA on FHIR England (COFE) End of Life (EOL) Care Document project aims to provide a viable alternative to HL7 v3 CDA for the transfer of end of life records between GP Systems/ Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination Systems (known as EPaCCS) and other healthcare organizations within NHS and social care settings, using the HL7 FHIR standard.
The project will run in parallel with a CDA based project. Both projects will deliver the same capability.
This FHIR Document specification is based on and intended to be used alongside the published FHIR DSTU2 1.0.1 (October 2015) specification.
This FHIR Document specification is published as a 'work in progress' version and as such is subject to change. As it is a draft, it is not in an implementable state. It has been published to show the direction of travel and to serve as a discussion document for parties involved with the implementation of CDA On FHIR England Document communications.
