infoscribeSupporting the Standards Selection Framework, InfoScribe enables teams to collaboratively create, discuss, and publish digital health solutions from clinical requirements to specifications. Featuring templates, versioning, PDF export, inline commenting and HL7 Explorer integration, InfoScribe improves productivity and accelerates the development of healthcare solutions.

Standards Selection Framework

The Standards Selection Framework provides users with the means to plan, choose and document interoperability solutions from concept through to implementation. Starting from the Clinical Requirements identified by clinicians through to business requirements, standards and technical specifications, the framework provides a comprehensive guide through the development of interoperability solutions.

The framework also provides an opportunity for the InfoCentral community to share successful implementation projects, the standards selections made at a point in time of the project and the specifications that result from the selections made. Publishing solutions in this space will help to establish a Canadian repository of references.

clinical requirements

Clinical Requirements describe the information and workflow needs of the clinician for a specific clinical context and clinical data exchange. Using the Clinical Interoperability Principles as a guide, a set of requirements expressed in the clinician’s voice will provide the foundation for a well-designed interoperability solution.

business requirements

Business Requirements are derived from clinical requirements and provide a full picture of the solution that needs to be developed. Use cases, business rules and guidance are used to fully outline the solution design.

standards

Standards are an integral piece of the interoperability solution, covering both the terminology that defines the data sent, and the messaging structures that define how the data is transferred. The framework provides the access and consideration criteria to the international and Canadian standards to facilitate implementation.

standards selection

Standards Selection refers to the process that has been developed to help guide teams through the selection of terminology and messaging standards. Using the line of inquiry and considerations in the forms provided implementation teams may assess the standards available and determine the best option for the point in time. The process also provides an opportunity for the InfoCentral community to share successful implementation projects, promoting standardization through reuse.

specifications

Specifications provide the details for the solution to be implemented. These details include: a review of the data elements used, samples of transferred messages, the system architecture as well as the security specifications including authorization and authentication.

Solution for API integration

Infoway Message Builder allows developers to focus on their business problem by providing APIs that foster quick and easy creation, population and access to HL7v3 requests and responses and CDA documents.

Get the app
 

Message Builder is available for both Java and .NET platforms and it comes as core application or pre-packaged API with versions of the pan-Canadian HL7 v3 standard or CDA
