This document reposts a case study on how to establish and maintain standardized cardiac examination export measurement data (CE-EMD), especially for enabling its secondary use for medical research. The document includes information for CE-EMD on:
— Building a representative coalition of stakeholders to identify and establish specifications;
— Standardizing both the content and format in reports;
— Maintaining and extending the specifications over time.
Out-of-scope for this document are any requirements for specific CE-EMD content or formatting. Also, this document is limited to cardiac examination reporting, and does not encompass other clinical care areas or reporting that have been standardized.
