Are Meaningful Use Stage 2 certified EHRs ready for interoperability? Findings from the SMART C-CDA Collaborative.
Bottom Line: Based upon our analysis and vendor discussions, we identified 11 specific areas that represent relevant barriers to the interoperability of C-CDA documents.We identified errors and permissible heterogeneity in C-CDA documents that will limit semantic interoperability.Our findings also point to several practical opportunities to improve C-CDA document quality and exchange in the coming years.

Mentions: We submitted the same samples for scoring by the SMART C-CDA Scorecard, obtaining an average score of 63% (range 23–100%; figure 2). As expected, no correlation (R2<0.01) was observed between TTT results and SMART C-CDA Scorecard scores because they examine wholly different aspects of C-CDA document correctness. De-identified group results were presented publically and identified results were shared during individual vendor sessions.
