14.8 Resource ConditionDefinition - Content

Patient Care Work GroupMaturity Level: 0 Trial UseSecurity Category: Anonymous Compartments: Not linked to any defined compartments

A definition of a condition and information relevant to managing it.

A condition definition defines a set of system properties for a particular condition.

It is important to understand the condition definition resource is not intended to be used to define the underlying biological or ontological basis for the condition; instead the focus is on how the the condition is identified, managed, and treated.

  • Conditions may have a matching condition definition, but need not do so
  • Condition definitions may identify observations and signs (including, but not limited to) lab tests that are indicative of the condition
  • Condition definitions often identify ongoing observations to prioritize when viewing the chart of patients with the conditions
  • Condition definitions may identify applicable care plans

One frequent criticism of information systems in healthcare is that they do not adapt well to changing context, particularly the context of what is specifically wrong. A typical institution will have 20-30,000 different kinds of observational data, but only a small portion of these are relevant to any particular condition. Information systems supporting clinical care provision are increasingly investigating the use of AI, but ConditionDefinition provides a simple way to help the system be more adaptive.
