Guideline (Primer) for CITS eHealth1

This guideline (primer) describes the eHealth1 Content Information Type Specification (CITS). Some notes regarding the scope of implementation are included, but in most cases, this will not be sufficient to explain how the specification will actually be applied, due to the complexity of each system. The guideline is an evolving document, and thoroughly explained examples will be added continuously. In this review, we would like you to focus on these questions.

Guideline (Primer) for the CITS SIARD

The purpose of the guideline is to further explain and describe the “Content Information Type Specification for Relational Databases using SIARD” also called CITS SIARD. The goal is that as many people as possible will be able to understand the specification and therefore also to preserve relational databases. Therefore it also includes introductory sections about relational databases and their preservation. This also includes the history of SIARD and the relationship between the SIARD specification and the CITS SIARD specification. The main chapter, however, is a walkthrough of the requirements where rationales/descriptions are provided to better understand the technical requirements.
