So, today - I am posting on my blog about my new found PDF love - PDF Healthcare.
PDF Healthcare is simply advice for developers and users of PDF in the health care industry.
There is a very active AIIM PDF Healthcare committee (AIIM is the Association for Information and Image Management) that has a goal to describe generally unknown attributes of the Portable Document Format (PDF) to facilitate the capture, exchange, preservation and protection of healthcare information.
PDF Healthcare allows health care providers and consumers and healthcare system and solution developers to develop a secure, electronic container that can store and transmit relevant health information, including but not limited to personal documents, handwritten clinical notes, laboratory test result reports, electronic forms, scanned images, photographs, digital X-rays, and ECGs, important for reliable exchange of the important data for maintaining and improving one's health.
Unlike PDF/X - which is an ANSI and ISO standard - PDF Healthcare is simply advice for developers and users of PDF in the health care industry.
I have been focused on PDF Forms.
I have created a page you can review with some samples and examples of a PDF Healthcare form that contains HL7 XML data.

Hope you enjoy it !
