Condition - Diagnosis -Health Issue - Problems - Findings Modeling Options

General Assumption About Finding

  • The purpose of finding model is to describe something that exists or is true (a diagnosis, a condition, a finding) about a person
  • The finding can be highly pre coordinated or post coordinated.  It has substructure that depends on the kind of thing that is being represented
  • The finding model gets reused in many different contexts: Health Issue (Problem), Family History, Complication, Reason for Admission, Surgery Complication, Final Discharge Diagnosis, Finding, etc.
