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.
This FHIR implementation guide will use the US Core profiles. If this FHIR implementation guide is unable to use a US Core profile we will request approval from US Realm SC, and provide the US Realm approved rationale for deviation in the implementation guide where applicable.
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.
Blood pressure as a component of vital signs also plays a key role in national efforts to control hypertension in the U.S.. This project is collaborating with the AMA in supporting the Target BP program which is focused on helping health care organizations, at no cost, improve BP control rates through an evidence-based quality improvement program and recognizes organizations committed to improving BP control, measure blood pressure accurately and enable patient self-measurement (SMBP). SMBP can also help providers better diagnose high BP and effectively manage patients. More information can be found at www.targetbp.com.
The goal for this project identify the additional qualifiers, and value sets and add them encode them within the FHIR profile.
