Main Priorities for this Month

S&I Framework CEDD & Role of S&I CEDD Workgroup

The S&I Framework Clinical Element Data Dictionary (CEDD) is a repository of clinically-relevant data elements and their corresponding definitions. The S&I Framework CEDD is intended to capture the unambiguously-defined data elements identified and reused by the initiatives. The document provides a single go-to resource for the context and definition of all data elements supporting S&I initiative use cases and S&I Framework technical specifications, content, tools, or services. The S&I Framework Cross-Initiative CEDD WG was created to manage recommended additions and enhancements (e.g. new CEDD data elements, edits to existing CEDD data elements) to the S&I CEDD submitted by the S&I Framework initiatives. Work on the S&I CEDD is guided by practicing clinicians and other implementers who are interested in creating a simple, easy to understand data model for functional stakeholders to use. For a more detailed overview of the S&I Framework CEDD, review the S&I Framework CEDD Overview page.
