Benefits

CDA documents can be very large and lengthy, diminishing the need to provide the right amount of information needed to provide efficient patient care. The CDA-DSS profile enables the ability to provide relevant and pertinent information in a CDA document by leveraging concise summary information. The information is provided in document summary sections supporting specific purposes that the document receiver and sender specifies. This allows large amounts of information in a CDA document to be provided along with summarization of pertinent information. This will assist by NOT overwhelming the person viewing the rendered document.
