Emergency Department Encounter Summary Documents
The CDA-CH-EDES content profile is a Swiss realm of the IHE content profile "Emergency Department Encounter Summary (EDES)". It is available at HL7.ch or on the medshare CDA page. The serialization and deserialization of CDA-CH-EDES documents is supported by the eHealth Connector. The CDA-CH-EDES content profile describes typical scenarios which make use of slightly different instances of the CDA document:
Physician note, based on IHE Emergency Department Physician Note (EDPN)
Nursing note, based on IHE Composite Triage and Nursing Note (CTNN).
Both document types are supported by the eHealthConnector CDA-CH-EDES implementation.
The analysis of the Demo Applications is recommended for getting started.
Use the DemoEDES demo for the current use case. It will generate example document instances and save them in a temp path.
There exist also some HL7 FHIR resources that can be used to demonstrate the functionality. If you provide path and filename to DemoEDES, it will generate appropriate CDA documents. The FHIR resources can be found in rsc\demoCdaChEdes.
If you are an application programmer and want to see, how the API is used to generate CDA-CH-EDES documents, take a look inside the java or dotnet demo project. The methods “org.ehealth_connector.demo.cda.DemoEDES.doDemo()” (java demo application) and “eHealthConnectorDemo.MainForm.btnCDACHDemo_Click()” (dotnet demo application) are good starting points.
