C-CDA Scorecard Now Available
A beta version Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA) scorecard is now available on ONC’s Standards Implementation & Testing Environment (SITE).  The SITE C-CDA Scorecard is a benchmarking tool designed to enable health care providers, health IT implementers, and health IT developers compare how the C-CDAs created by their health IT stack up against the HL7 C-CDA implementation guide and HL7 best practices.
The SITE C-CDA Scorecard and its scoring methodology is one aspect of the cooperative agreement between ONC and HL7.  It includes three layers of review:  1) 2014 Edition and 2015 Edition health IT certification requirements (as applicable); 2) HL7 C-CDA implementation guide specifications (for C-CDA 2.1 in the beta version, and R1.1 later); and 3) authoritative implementation “best practices” published by HL7 for C-CDA.  The scorecard produces a categorized report with C-CDA section grades and tips related to areas for improvement.
ONC's SITE ( is a centralized collection of testing tools and resources. SITE is designed to assist health IT developers and health IT users evaluate technical standards and maximize the potential of their health IT implementations.
