Another intermediate ART-DECOR® release – 1.8.36 – has been published mid of January 2017. Since the last update to 1.8.29 in September, a lot of new features and improvements have been implemented so the ART-DECOR Expert Group felt, that an intermediate release – before ART-DECOR® 2.0 gets published later this year – would be of great support for the community.
ART-DECOR® is an open-source tool suite that supports the creation and maintenance of HL7 templates, value sets, scenarios and data sets. The tool features cloud-based federated Building Block Repositories (BBR) for Templates and Value Sets. It supports comprehensive collaboration of team members within and between governance groups. ART-DECOR® allows separation of concerns and different views on a single common documentation for different domain experts and multidisciplinary stakeholders of healthcare information exchange.
BTW: 1.8 is the stable release series of versions, 1.9 is handled internally by us as the development edition. That’s why we’re close to 2.0 :-). This is a summary of the recently added features and enhancements, sorted by areas.
