This application has multiple purposes.
Please email questions to the IHE Europe Connectathon Manager (Eric Poiseau) for guidance through the process.
CDAGenerator offers a documentation of CDA templates, CDA constraints, and CDA structure.
CDAGenerator offers a complete documentation of the structure of the CDA standard. It is the same description that we find in the schema of CDA R2. The documentation is generated from the UML model that describes the CDA standard. To access the documentation, you have to go to menu -> CDA Documentation -> CDA Content Documentation
The html page that describes the Root element (ClinicalDocument) looks like this :
All the templates described and validated by CDAGenerator are documented by the tool.
To access the documentation you have to go to : menu -> Documentation -> CDA Templates Documentation, which looks like this :
The documentation of each template is generated automatically from the UML model, which describes the template and its constraints.
The CDA constraint documentation is a page that contains all the constraints validated by CDAGenerator. This page allows you to perform searches of a constraint by its name, its dependency to a class or a package, or by keyword from the description, etc.
To go to the page of constraint documentation ou have to go to the menu -> Documentation -> Constraints Search
CDAGenerator offers the possibility to edit and to create basic CDA documents. To do so, you have to go to menu -> CDA Generation -> CDA-Edition
You can Generate an empty file, or you can uplaod a CDA file :
To use the module of edition, you have to click on the button edit.
A new page will be opened containing the possibility to edit element by element each sub element of the root ClinicalDocument.
The same page allows to download the modified CDA document, or to validate it, or to save it.
The editor of CDA document is generated also from the model of description of the structure of CDA document.
CDAGenerator includes a web service of validation, that could be used as a standalone service without using EVSClient, to validate a CDA document
The CDA Generator Application is an experimental system.
