The Race and Ethnic Group OIDs in LRI IG 4.6 refers to the CDC vocabulary (coding system CDCREC), not the HL7 Table OID. In the CDC list, Race is a hierarchal list which contains the same values as HL70005, but also contains many additional codes, and also contains Ethnic Group values in the same list. MU1 and MU2 refer to OMB "standard" which does not contain any codes but matches HL7 tables for concept domains (descriptions).

I could not find HL7 OID looking for the V2 table numbers (e.g. HL70005) but did find items below (need confirmation these are correct):

Race 2.16.840.1.113883.11.14914

"Ethnicity" 2.16.840.1.113883.11.15836

Recommended Action Items

  • 18-Sep-2012 - We need further input from Freida to determine what the OIDs should be changed to as it is not clear what the proposal is and/or whether further research is still required.


The following need to be changed:

  • Pg. 93 – change to 2.16.840.1.113883.12.5 Race
