A comparison of VistA's Native Patient Schema to SMART's and the VPR

This document will compare the patient slice of VistA's native data model to the equivalent in SMART and the VA's VPR. Comparison will focus on coverage and ease of mapping between the native scheme which grew up over time and these formally designed schemes. Note: as the VPR lacks a formal schema description - at least it lacks one designed for the web-of-data - we will first need to define it before comparing its granularity to VistA's or SMART's.
