In highly developed society, information and communication technologies are widely used for better medical services. These information and communication technologies should be more and more acceptable in all hospitals for exchange medical records. EMR becomes more convenient than the previously used paper charts. It will be able to record medical institutions every time and dual treatment. Each is different specifications for each medical institution to use the program or document to exchange it. The personal clinic records still does not exchange well. To solve this gap between medical alienation, this paper describes the concepts of HL7-CDA and proposes types of telemedicine system. To resolve time and space constraints, new form of treatment methods presents in future directions after described about related systems. CDA enables electronic medical records to the each medical center and gradually expanded by exchanging the patient's medical records. This paper is using XML-based CDA documents as a hierarchical for medical information exchange standards compliant HL7-CDA documents. It could be possible currently used structural variety of multimedia data. Thus It is able to send and receive HL7-CDA-based medical information and clinical information to identify the medical institutions of medical information with interchange system design and building standards, and through mutual exchange of clinical information.
