C-DAC’s Medical Informatics Standards Software Development Kit for Continuity of Care Document (CCD) Release 1 is a toolkit that provides APIs to enable integration of HL7/ASTM’s Continuity of Care Document (CCD) standard in healthcare applications.
CCD is an XML-based standard which provides a "snapshot in time" constraining a summary of the patient’s clinical, demographic, and administrative data. The effective use of SDK ensures a move towards standardized communication methods for patient summary record exchange which brings interoperability between healthcare systems.
The toolkit is designed to be easily programmable allowing developers to build sophisticated and complex applications on top of it. The SDK provides set of APIs which can be integrated in application to generate [serialize] XML based Continuity of Care Document and APIs to read [parse] already existing CCD XML document.
