HealthInfoCDA denotes a health informatics educational intervention for learning about the clinical process through use of the Clinical Document Architecture (CDA). We hypothesize those common standards for an electronic health record can provide content for a case base for learning how to make decisions. The medical record provides a shared context to coordinate delivery of healthcare and is a boundary object that satisfies the informational requirement of multiple communities of practice. This study transforms clinical narrative in three knowledge-rich modalities: case write-up, patient record and online desk reference to develop a case base of experiential clinical knowledge useful for medical and health informatics education. Our ultimate purpose is to aggregate concepts into knowledge elements for case-based teaching.
