Glossary Rules

Note: New terms from public comment versions of supplements are not in in the glossary; they will be added when the supplement moves to trial implementation. The goal is to update the glossary annually.

  1. The following are not to be included in the glossary:
    1. Profile names or acronyms
    2. Actor names or acronyms
    3. Domain names or acronyms (e.g., ITI, PCC, PCD, Radiology, Patient Care Coordination, etc.)
    4. Transaction names or acronyms
    5. Domain Technical Framework names or acronyms (e.g., ITI TF-1)
    6. Words that are used in the standard dictionary sense (e.g., antepartum, antibiotic, anorexia, anesthesia, aperiodic, etc,)
  2. For terms we borrow and use from (HL7, DICOM, etc.), reference the standard. For example:
    1. SCU: DICOM PS 3.5; Service Class User.
    2. Modality Performed Procedure Step: See DICOM PS3.3.
  3. Standards are to be included in the glossary. For example:
    1. HTML: Hyper Text Markup Language
  4. Organizations do belong in the glossary and should include a link to the respective web site. For example:
    1. ACC: American College of Cardiology. See http://www.acc.org/.
  5. Limit the body of the definitions to briefly describing what the thing is, but avoid getting into IHE usage details that really belong in the bodies of the technical frameworks themselves.
    1. (TOO LONG) Modality Worklist: A mechanism defined to support the imaging workflow, by which the LIS provides the attributes of the imaging subject to modalities. In radiology, the imaging subject is the patient; in anatomic pathology, the imaging subject is a specimen derived from the patient. The Modality Worklist provides patient, order (study) and specimen identification and description to be included in the acquired images. Therefore the LIS needs to provide the attributes of the Specimen Module for each specimen being imaged. Therefore, the attributes of the Specimen Module have been defined in a ‘Macro’ construct, and added to the Scheduled Procedure Step Module of Modality Worklist. Conceptually, then, the Procedure Step is scheduled for the imaging of one or more specimen containers. While the use of the specimen attributes is optional according to the Standard for any Modality Worklist implementation, the APW profile requires their use for effective interoperability.
    2. (BETTER) Modality Worklist: DICOM PS3.3; A collection of Scheduled Procedure Steps which describe arbitrarily defined units of service that have been scheduled for an imaging device (such as a CT Scanner or a Pathology Whole-Slide Scanner).
  6. For acronyms, include two entries in the glossary, one for the full term and one for the acronym (pointing to the full term). For example:
    1. Modality Worklist: DICOM PS3.3; A collection of Scheduled Procedure Steps which describe arbitrarily defined units of service that have been scheduled for an imaging device (such as a CT Scanner or a Pathology Whole-Slide Scanner).
    2. MWL: See Modality Worklist

Note: Some domains included acronyms without a brief description. In this case, only the acronym appears in the glossary. Please supply the brief description if missing.
