Scope of Lab Order Template (ID: 587)

To develop a lab order model which meets the needs of lab for v3 and conforms to the composite order model as well.

Conceptual Specification To Dos

  • September 2011 WGM
    • Create conceptual datatypes for items needed by conceptual models (done)
    • Review model interactions for consistency
    • Consider naming conventions for parts of the artifacts, and identifiers
    • Add the business context text to the use cases, and to the service specifications
  • January 2012 WGM
    • Review package structure and how to relate composite order model to lab models
    • Consider whether need a different package view for publishing purposes from working structure
    • Create Service-Specification Template of the spec documentation structure
    • Clean up state machines
      • Fulfillment or In progress
    • Create a communication diagram as an alternative to the sequence (determined not to do at this time)
    • Review of event flow
      • Clarify activity currently called "Patient Presents at Lab" to indicate that they are not actually presenting at the lab, maybe Patient Service Center, or just Patient Presents
      • Expand lab activities to include steps like evaluating sample for suitability and notifying if rejected (PEL> aren't these result interactions?)
      • Expand diagram and the storyboard for the simple acute case where the collector goes to the patient.
      • Add content to the storyboard for the provider collects.


  • Criterion mood to an attribute (preconditions)
  • Lab order is a proper subset of composite order (in two weeks)
    • composite order missing:
    • data enterer.modeCode
    • informationrecipient.sequenceNumber, info.rcpt.time
    • we are not using consistent sequenceNumber, should be there for all AR and Part where the min cardinality is 1 or higher
    • add subject to lab
    • lab order need location (yes)
    • should composite have reasonCode on placerGroup>?
    • update composite obs req and lab obs req for new negation ind
    • lab obs request, status must be mandatory
    • composite order, why ActDefinition.text (esp. as optional)
    • lab prioractrequest, remove code, text, correct spelling 'o'bsolete (lower case 'o')
    • does lab need preconidition

Completed RMIM To Dos

  • Review 'old' context conduction - DONE (PEL 20110911)
  • look at whether PatientorAssigned should still use R-assignedEntity - No change (PEL 20110911)
  • bring up to date to the current RIM - DONE (PEL 20110911)
  • Replace supporting clinical information CMET with supporting clinical statement
  • Replace annotation with annotation cmet
  • Add event to fulfillment AR
  • replace lab process step with process step cmet
