Submitted date: 15-Jan-2009 Change request ID: CSCR-092


Align clinical statement observation and procedure with source models


  • Add interruptableInd to observation and procedure
  • Add indepdendentInd to observation


  • InterruptableInd is added to orders to communicate that a particular diagnostic or treatment can't be "stopped" during the action itself.
  • IndependentInd is added to associated acts (associated using act relationships) when a particular class can't be "interpreted" without the associated act (so the value is set to false)


Recommended Action Items

  • Add Observation.interruptableInd and Procedure.interruptableInd
    • interruptable description: used to indicate, on a request, that a particular action cannot be stopped during that action (e.g. 24 hour specimen collection procedure cannot be stopped in the middle)
    • Observation.interruptibleInd: BL [0..1] optional
    • Procedure.interruptibleInd: BL [0..1] optional
  • Add Observation.independentInd
    • description: indicates whether this observation can be understood without accompanying associated information.
    • Observation.independentInd: BL [0..1] optional
