Name

Remove choice PatientOrRelated and tidy recordTarget participation

Issue

  1. In the current Clinical Statement DMIM there is a choice called PatientOrRelated it has no common entry or exit points and the two roles in the choice. Therefore this choice should be removed.
  2. There is a related cosmetic issue with the DMIM as it appears that the recordTarget is a “RelatedEntity” role. In fact the connection is (correctly) to patient so this is just a layout problem.

Recommendation

  • Remove the PatientOrRelated role choice and place the roles it contains as direct members of the choice PatientOrRelatedOrSpecimen role choice.
  • Move the recordTarget participations so its appearance conforms with its connections points.

Rationale

  • The PatientOrRelated role choice serves no purpose in the current model since so relationships enter or leave it.
  • The layout is misleading with respect to the role that participates as recordTarget.
