    Description

      Existing wording: This profile sets minimum expectations for the Observation resource to record, search, and fetch non-imaging and non-laboratory clinical tests results for a patient.

      Proposed wording: This profile sets minimum expectations for the Observation resource to record, search, and fetch non-imaging and non-laboratory clinical tests results (clinical procedure results) for a patient. As per the definition of the Procedure category, Observations generated by other procedures. This category includes observations resulting from interventional and non-interventional procedures excluding laboratory and imaging (e.g., cardiology catheterization, endoscopy, electrodiagnostics, etc.). Procedure results are typically generated by a clinician to provide more granular information about component observations made during a procedure. An example would be when a gastroenterologist reports the size of a polyp observed during a colonoscopy. It should not include content associated with any other ObservationCategoryCodes (e.g. social-history, vital-signs, imaging, laboratory, survey, exam, therapy, activity).
