Description

The Department of Veterans Affairs exchanges Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs) with a large and rapidly growing number of organizations. The CCDs are generated on-demand. No caching is done. We evaluated the amount of duplicate documents. On average, in the same day, the proportions of same CCDs sent and received are 23% and 32% respectively. Caching documents could save processing time, provide end-users with a faster access, and reduce unintended consequences on data analytics.

Learning Objective 1: Differentiate between on-demand and cached document repositories as they relate to document-based health information exchange.

Learning Objective 2: Quantify and explain the percent of duplication associated with on-demand document exchange strategy. What is the impact? What can be done about it?
