I’m looking for a place to read up on ckm editorial policies/decisions.
From reviewing medication summary I noticed all summary archetypes (alcohol use, smoking etc) are evaluations, while they mostly/solely describe observed data points (e.g. amount taken of a medication) so I wondered why they are not observations?
It states: “The Observation class is for recording information that varies over a short period of time.“
From that statement it makes sense to model a summary of lifetime medication use as EVALUATION.
But from the spec I would say summaries like medication usage are observations: EHR Information Model
I’m not looking to change current modelling practices as much as understanding the history behind the current practice.
