    Description

      Recommend clarifying this sentence to ensure that the duplication requirement for scanned documents in DocumentReference and DiagnosticReport is unambiguous. Currently, the sentence may be interpreted as a potential loophole.

      Existing Wording:

      If servers properly categorized scanned reports and used the correct resource per report type (e.g. Pathology scan in DiagnosticReport) this wouldn’t be required.

      Proposed Wording:

      If servers properly categorized scanned reports and used the correct resource per report type (e.g. Pathology scan in DiagnosticReport) this wouldn’t be required, however at the time of this IG's development, this duplication requirement is necessary due to a lack of consistency in proper use of these resources.
