About Business Rules

Business Rules are logical requirements for completing an ePCR based on various field selections. For example, if the Patient Disposition field is not marked as Canceled or No Patient Found, information must be entered in the Patient Demographics fields. These logical requirements may already exist in NEMSIS guidelines or as department protocols. However, you can create Business Rules in CDX for any additional departmental needs.

For states using CDX, rules must be generated as a schematron file, an XML representation of the rules, in order for the system to use them in validating uploaded run records. State administrators can also upload an external schematron file to be used in the validation process.
