An email in mid December 2014 raised the question of clinical annotation:
- "Is it ClinicalAssessment the best way to model a clinical annotation instead of Observation?"
A number of email exchanges that followed showed the non clinical community appeared to have considerable confusion over the three concepts: observation, clinical assessment and annotation.
This wiki page is intended to provide some clarity from the clinical perspectives to help resolve the confusion.
