Configuring use of a private CDA repository

Follow these steps to configure Communicare to save CDA documents to a private repository.

The following configuration is required before summaries can be generated:
  • Encounter places must have a valid HPI-O configured.
  • The current Provider must have a valid HPI-I that is linked to their Communicare login username
  • NASH Org Certificate matching the encounter place's HPI-O. The NASH certificate is used to sign the CDA document.
To configure Communicare to save CDA documents to a private repository, complete the following steps:
  1. Disable My Health Record access:
    1. Log into Communicare as an administrator.
    2. Select File > System Parameters, System tab.
    3. In the modules list, deselect My Health Record Access.
  2. Enable use of the private repository:
    1. On the System tab, in the modules list, set Third Party CDA.
    2. On the Web Services tab, ensure that Enable HI Service is set.
    3. On the Integration tab, in the Private repository name field, enter the name of your private repository.
    4. On the Integration tab, if you don't want to include patient addresses and phone numbers in the generated XML documents, deselect Include patient contact details. Patient contact details are not displayed in the rendered summaries, but are included in the XML source if this option is set.
    5. Click Save.
    6. Enter your authority code provided by Communicare Support.
    7. Restart Communicare.
  3. Set certificates:
    1. Select File > Organisation Maintenance.
    2. Open your health service and on the Certificates tab, in the HI Certificate field, select your HI certificate.
    3. Click Save.
  4. Grant access to the module to user groups:
    1. Select File > User Groups.
    2. Select the user group that you want to grant access to.
    3. On the System Rights tab, set Third Party CDA.
    4. Click Save.

You can now generate and save CDA Event Summaries and Shared Health Summaries to your private CDA repository.
