An integral element of the Standards Selection Framework
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.
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.
