Extra Content Considerations

Gap Analysis and Extra Content

You can include Extra Content in the Gap Analysis process under the following conditions:

  • Compare 2 profiles, not a profile and a set of messages.  No Extra Content is collected during the analysis of HL7 messages.
  • Both profiles must use the same Extra Content template.

Once these two conditions are met, the Extra Content elements are managed the exact same way as the other elements. Gaps in the Extra Content elements will also be displayed.
