SFCU value set includes "Specified". This is meaningless. We need a meaningful value as alternative to male, female and inknown.

      The GH project agrees that the term "Specified" is unusual in this context and therefore users may need to look at the definition and full concept display in order to understand the intended meaning and use.

      The final decision of the GH group is to use the following for the "specified" idea:

      • Display text for concept: Apply specified setting or reference range;
      • Code: Specified
      • Definition: Available data indicates that diagnostics, analytics, and treatment best practices may be undefined or not aligned with sex-derived reference populations. Additional information (usually, but not always, in the form of comments and/or observations) may be available.
