Abstract

In this document a reporting system is described with the aim of allowing an easy reading of medical report (in PDF format) to a human-user (clinician), and to a programmatic- user who has to capture and make available the clinical data contained in EHR software. The system provides a non-repudiable signature, with PADES protocol, which attests the role and purpose of Authorized Signer of the PDF document. We approached to this problem by validating the technologies provided by the standards of medical infomatics. Clinical data, acquired from clinical experts, are converted in a Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) , as defined by the Health Level 7 (HL7) organization.
