Orders and Observations
The HL7 Orders and Observation Work Group is interested in the readiness of the Observation resources to progress to a normative Maturity level. This tract is specifically focused on readiness of Observation to handle Patient reported data - in other words, observations that are reported directly by the patient. In many cases patients are asked to record and report clinical and nutritional data for example using an app on a smart phone. ('gateway'). The goal of this tract is to identify any potential issues and gaps in the Observation resource by stepping through a couple of simple scenarios described below. For example, we discovered that constraining the timing of events to only dateTimes did not account for patient's oftentimes reporting the events as occurring relative to another event - e.g., "before breakfast".
