Introduction

The CH-VACD implementation guide describes the FHIR representation of the defined documents for the exchange of vaccination and immunization information. This implementation guide is dependent on the CH Core Profiles CH Core which describes the Swiss specific resources.

Initially the implementation guide was build up based on the CDA-CH-VACD - Immunization Content (eVACDOC) ART-DECOR® specification which has been published by eHealth Suisse. CDA-CH-VACD - Immunization Content (eVACDOC) defines the documents for the exchange of immunization and vaccination information. The documents are based on the IHE Technical Framework „Patient Care Coordination (PCC)“ with the profile „Immunization Content (IC)“. The IHE PCC himself references the HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA).

During the development of the IG a lot of issues popped up which had to be resolved. The fact that the version 2.1 of the CDA was not really in use led to the cut of the reverse compatibility to the CDA in order to be able to set up a proper and usable exchange format based on FHIR.

The circumstance to be able to exchange the information across borders had his influence on the specification. The International Patient Summary Implementation Guide (IPS) gave some support.

The following documents have been defined:
