    Description

      These were added to support changes in USCDI. These changes have been reversed in USCDI. Consider removing them based on this LOINC comment to USCDI.

      The LOINC Document Ontology Subcommittee recommends removing the 3 rows for Laboratory narrative, Pathology narrative, and Imaging narrative. These three concepts represent narrative text from Clinical Reports, which capture information related to a lab test or imaging procedure (i.e., in response to an “order”) versus Clinical Notes, which are written by providers during the course of providing clinical care, and not in response to an order.

      For example the Imaging Narative has been moved to the Diagnostic Imaging class in USCDI v2. It is not shown as draft.

      Existing Wording:

      New Content
      6. Imaging Narrative
      7. Laboratory Report Narrative
      8. Pathology Report Narrative

      Proposed Wording:

      Remove new content from this list
