HPXML Implementation Guide

The HPXML Implementation Guide provides detailed information to program administrators, implementers, and software developers on how to integrate the standard into a user's work stream or product.

The HPXML Implementation Guide is designed to help to program administrators, implementers, and software developers integrate HPXML into their work stream or product.

The Implementation Guide is divided into two sections.

The first section is for program administrators. This section discusses the benefits of HPXML adoption and walks administrators through the process of goal setting, identifying data needs, data validation, testing protocols and user training, and quality management. It also contains a link to the data selection tool, which can assist administrators in identifying the required data associated with HPXML use cases.

The second section is for software developers. This section provides developers with information on versioning, document structure, XML element references and use case validation. The guide also provides links to sample HPXML files.
