The purpose of the Health Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP) Clinical Document and Message Terminology Component is to define the vocabulary for either document-based or message-based HITSP constructs such as Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) documents, HL7 V2 messages, etc. For more in-depth information about how this Component relates to other HITSP constructs, see HITSP/TN901 Clinical Documents.

This section describes the conformance criteria, which are objective statements of requirements that can be used to determine if a specific behavior, function, interface, or code set has been implemented correctly.
In order to claim conformance to this construct specification, an implementation must satisfy all the requirements and mandatory statements listed in this specification, the associated HITSP Interoperability Specification or Capability, its associated construct specifications, as well as conformance criteria from the selected base and composite standards. A conformant system must also implement all of the required interfaces within the scope, subset or implementation option that is selected from the associated Interoperability Specification.Claims of conformance may only be made for the overall HITSP Interoperability Specification or Capability with which this construct is associated.
A HITSP Interoperability Specification or Capability must be implemented in its entirety for an implementation to claim conformance to the specification. HITSP may define the permissibility for interface scoping, subsetting or implementation options by which the specification may be implemented in a limited manner. Such scoping, subsetting and options may extend to associated constructs, such as this construct. This construct must implement all requirements within the selected scope, subset or options as defined in the associated Interoperability Specification or Capability to claim conformance.
