The CDA book provides clear and easy to use guidance to implement the standard, with numerous examples covering many of the nuances of the standard. Readers can learn not only how to implement healthcare IT using the CDA standard, but to "speak" in the language of the standard, and to understand its idioms.

This is an excellent book if read from cover to cover, especially if one has some basic familiarity with a practical example of a CDA document. So far in my extensive use of the book its greatest weakness is its feeble index. There is far more information in the book than one would guess by looking at the index. There are countless times I wished I had a searchable electronic version where I could re-find the item I knew I read about but it was not in the index. The only way was to so often skim through the pages trying to recall where it was; an act usually doomed to failure. But eventually at some future time I stumble across it. I would give it 5 stars if it had an index worth the content.

About the author (2011)

Keith W. Boone has been involved in the development of Health Level 7 standards including the HL7 Clinical Document Architecture since 2004. He co-chaired the HL7 Structured Documents working group from 2007 to 2010, which is the home of CDA in Health Level 7 International. He is presently a member at large of the HL7 Board.

Keith also co-chairs the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Patient Care Coordination (PCC) planning committee which develops CDA Implementation Guides (which IHE calls profiles) for use internationally. He co-chaired the technical committee of that group from 2006 to 2009.

He also co-chaired the ANSI/HITSP Care Management and Health Records (CMHR) domain technical committee which developed the ANSI/HITSP C32 Summary Documents using CCD and the ANSI/HITSP C83 CDA Document Content Module specifications, and the Data Architecture tiger team which developed the ANSI/HITSP C152 Data Dictionary specification.

He also participates in other standards organizations, including the US Technical Advisory Group to ISO TC-215, ASTM and Continua.

Mr. Boone is a Standards Architect for GE Healthcare, where he is currently employed, and represents GE Healthcare to numerous standard organizations. He was introduced to IHE profiles and HL7 standards while working as a Chief Engineer at Dictaphone Corporation where he took on the role of leading that organization's efforts in standards. Before he developed an interest in the HL7 Clinical Document Architecture, Keith was a Software Architect for eBusiness Technologies, an XML technology company. There he was introduced to standards development, and worked alongside many of the co-chairs and developers of the XML specifications, including XML, XML Namespaces, XSLT, and XPath.
