The Standard-based Extract, Transform, and Load (SETL) cell supports interoperability between i2b2 and standards-based clinical data formats. Currently nearing completion are tools to import and process HL7 Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs), which healthcare systems will shortly be producing as a requirement of Meaningful Use.
Use case 1: Process CCD documents on the fly for live refresh of patient data in SMART apps
