Having a debate with some colleagues about the SNOMED CT binding in a proprietary UK GP system with respect to blood pressure, which uses:
163020007 |On examination - blood pressure reading (finding)|
Which is a finding.
To be terminologically correct my understanding is that values should be observable entities.
So I went to check our openEHR Blood Pressure archetype and it seems it too is using:
163030003 |On examination - Systolic blood pressure reading (finding)|
163031004 |On examination - Diastolic blood pressure reading (finding)|
So I think we should be suggesting bindings to:
271649006 |Systolic blood pressure (observable entity)|
271650006 |Diastolic blood pressure (observable entity)|
as everyone loves purist terminology debates, especially at XMas
What’s the thinking here?
