3a. Project Scope

To create the terminology content, logical models, FHIR profiles and implementation guides for all of vital signs including all qualifying observations (patient position, body location, device, method, etc.) and coded value sets, building on the FHIR Vital Signs profile currently in place.

3b. Project Need

Vital signs are collected on nearly every patient encounter. Oftentimes, the clinician needs to know the patient position, device, body location or method the measures were taken. The goal for this project identify the additional qualifiers, and value sets and add them encode them within the FHIR profile.
