Hello Everest,

I have a new question today as I have not gotten started on my project and am so far quite happy with Everest.

Realm Codes -

I am needing to specify a Realm Code according to the specialized CDA template to which my documents must conform. The Realm Code I am required to use is not included in the MARC.Everest.RMIM.UV.CDAr2.Vocabulary.BindingRealm enum. As the realms have been implemented as an enum, I am also under the impression that I can't apply an adapter pattern to protect myself from the evolution of the Everest framework. I am wondering if someone on the Everest team can tell me if they had considered how this problem would be addressed when they designed the framework and if so what they had in mind. If not, are there any suggestions out there as to how I might address this problem.

Thanks so much for the continued support,

You can override any enumerated code by using a non-standard code structure. This is how it is done:

var binding = new CS<BindingRealm>() { Code = CodeValue<BindingRealm>.Parse("MY_DOMAIN") };
cda.RealmCode = SET<CS<BindingRealm>>.CreateSET(binding);

Which will result in

<ClinicalDocument xmlns:xsi="" classCode="DOCCLIN" moodCode="EVN" xmlns="urn:hl7-org:v3">
  <realmCode code="MY_DOMAIN" />

You can also use the conversion utility from MARC.Everest.Connectors namespace:


var binding = Util.Convert<CS<BindingRealm>>("MY_CODE");
