A transport entry indicates the intended or actual mode of transport and time of departure and/or arrival of the patient.


See Templates using Transport

Transport Example
 <act classCode='ACT' moodCode='INT|EVN'>
   <templateId root=''/>
   <id root=' ' extension=' '/>
   <code code=' ' displayName=' '
     <originalText><reference value='#(ID of text coded)/></orginalText>
   <text><reference value='#text/></text>
     <high value=/>

<act classCode='ACT' moodCode='INT|EVN'>

This element indicates that the entry is an act (of transporting the patient, as indicated by the code below). This entry records the mode, and intended or actual ending time of transportation. In intent mood (moodCode='INT') this is how the estimated time of departure or arrival is indicated. In event mood (moodCode='EVN') this is how the actual departure or arrival of the patient is recorded.

<templateId root=''/>

The <templateId> element identifies this <act> as about the tranportation of the patient. The templateId must have root=''.

<id root=' ' extension=' '/>

The entry must have an identifier.

<code code=' ' displayName=' '
 codeSystem='2.16.840.1.113883.'  codeSystemName='DEEDS4.02'>

The code describes the intented mode of transport. For transport between facilities, IHE recommends the use of a code system based on the DEEDS Mode of Transportation data element value set. However, the vocabulary used within an affinity domain should be determined by a policy agreement within the domain.
