Cross-Community Document Reliable Interchange (XCDR)

From IHE Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

XCDR introduces the capability to send documents from a source Community with sufficient information to direct the documents through gateways to a designated target Community.


Summary

The Cross-Community Document Reliable Interchange (XCDR) Profile provides the capability to send a set of documents in a Cross-Community environment. The XCDR Profile specifies the transaction to push documents from an Initiating Gateway of a source Community to the Responding Gateway of a target Community. XCDR extends the deployment of a community organized around an XDS Document Registry and Repository(s) by allowing both Document Source Actors within this XDS based community, and also those in different communities to act as a source of documents.

Benefits

The XCDR Profile:

  • has similar deployment characteristics to the IHE Cross-Community Access (XCA) Profile and is easily combined and deployed in an environment that is already using XCA.
  • fully specifies the combined use with the IHE Cross-Enterprise Document Reliable Interchange (XDR) Profile, enabling XDR Document Source and Document Recipient Actors in separate communities to become connected. End-to-end acknowledgement is assured. A Document Source receives acknowledgment only when the Document Recipient in a remote community has received the document.
  • extends the deployment of a community organized around an XDS Document Registry and Repository(s) by allowing both Document Sources Actors within this XDS based community, and also those in different communities to act as a source of documents.

Details

XCDR supports the exchange of documents within a Cross-Community environment with Web-Services as transport. The routing of the document set relies on an Initiating Gateway in the source community and Responding Gateway(s) in one or more remote communities.


Systems Affected

This profile would be implemented in systems using XCA gateways.
