ObservationInterpretationOustsideThreshold

Summary

Defining URL:http://terminology.hl7.org/ValueSet/v3-ObservationInterpretationOustsideThreshold
Version:2.0.0
Name:ObservationInterpretationOustsideThreshold
Status:Active
Title:ObservationInterpretationOustsideThreshold
Definition:

The observation/test result is interpreted as being outside the inclusion range for a particular protocol within which the result is being reported.

Example: A positive result on a Hepatitis screening test.

Open Issue: We are not deprecating this value set at this time, but instead are leaving open the consideration of deprecation in the future. [Note: The concepts included in this value set have also been suggested for future deprecation, and there are no associated concept subdomains or bindings. Note also that the name of the value set appears to have a typo in it from the old cycle when it was originally added.]

0EXoutside thresholdThe observation/test result is interpreted as being outside the inclusion range for a particular protocol within which the result is being reported. **Example:** A positive result on a Hepatitis screening test. *Open Issue:* EX, HX, LX: These three concepts do not seem to meet a clear need in the vocabulary, and their use in observation interpretation appears likely to be covered by other existing concepts (e.g., A, H, L). The only apparent significant difference is their reference to use in protocols for exclusion of study subjects. These concepts/codes were proposed by RCRIM for use in the CTLaboratory message. They were submitted and approved in the November 2005 Harmonization cycle in proposal "030103C\_VOCAB\_RCRIM\_l\_quade\_RCRIM Obs Interp\_20051028154455". However, this proposal was not fully implemented in the vocabulary. The proposal recommended creation of the x\_ClinicalResearchExclusion domain in ObservationInterpretation with a value set including those three concepts/codes, but there is no subdomain of that name or equivalent with a binding to either of the value sets that contain these concepts/codes. Members of the OO WG have recently attempted to contact members of RCRIM regarding these concepts, both by email and at the recent WGM in Atlanta, without response. It is felt by OO that the best course of action to take at this time is to add this comprehensive Open Issue rather than deprecate these three concepts at this time, until further discussion is held.

1  LXbelow low thresholdThe numeric observation/test result is interpreted as being below the low threshold value for a particular protocol within which the result is being reported. **Example:** A Total White Blood Cell Count falling below a protocol-defined threshold value of 3000/mm^3 *Open Issue:* EX, HX, LX: These three concepts do not seem to meet a clear need in the vocabulary, and their use in observation interpretation appears likely to be covered by other existing concepts (e.g., A, H, L).

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
Source The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
