IP Issues

LM: Does AGOC License the form? AS: ACOG does license the form itself. It is a non-exclusive license and has no cost associated with it.

KB: We should incorporate a statement about this in the profile. Would ACOG draft some text that we could include in the profile?

JS/AS: Yes.


LM: Wiki updates were made recently.

LM: I've divided volume 2 into four parts: A and B; C, F and G; D; and E, is that OK?


LM: Do we have a volunteer to make sure the mood of the profile is rewrittent to be declaritive?

AD: Yes, we can do that.

LM: We need an Open Issues Log...

KB: Put that on the discussion page.

LM: So delete it ...

KB: Yes

LM: On the Actors and Transactions section, do we need this?

KB: I would ignore that for now. In the supplements, this is probably needed, but in the overall document it isn't.

LM: Does Radiology have a mechanism to deal with this?

KB: Probably not, since this seems to be a content profile issue.

LM: When Radiology included PIR, how did they handle this? Did they repeat pre-existing information or refer to existing material?

KB: I don't know.

LM: Can you take that as a to-do? To figure out our approach to this.

KB: Yes.

LM: Do you have any opinions about how to write the folder strategy?

KB: One of the things I'd like to do is to define the vocabulary used to identify the folder. This should be an update to the Bindings Section,

LM: Would this be the same for XD*

KB: I believe they all have folders.

We probably want to ask LOINC code for a new code for a SET of records that covers Antepartum Care, since these documents are not explicitely "LABOR AND DELIVERY RECORDS".

Claims Attachment ballot has listed in it a number of very usefull LOINC codes here: See Clinical Reports

  • How do you do panels?

5/21/07 Form C Misc Notes (TS)

Form C - Flowsheet

  • Larry referred to part of Form C as the Visit Summary section. A better term may be Flowsheet as this is how this particular section is generally referred to among most (if not all) ob/gyn practices.

  • Example data values for flowsheet items:
    • Weeks Gestation
      • 0-46 weeks
      • Consider that different vendors report this different ways.
        • Ex1: 20.5 means 20 weeks, 5 days
        • Ex2: 20w5d means 20 weeks, 5 days
    • Fundal Height
      • < 100 cm
    • Presentation
      • breach, undetermined, vertex, etc.
    • FHR
      • < 300
      • Could be a range or a specific number
    • Fetal Movement
      • present/absent/reduced
    • Preterm Labor Signs/Symptoms
      • present/absent
    • Cervix Exam Ultrasound Length
      • Dilation: 0-10cm
      • Effacement: 0-100%
      • Station:
        • -2 -1 0 +1 +2 +3
        • Floating (-2 -1)

    • Edema
      • 0/none Trace +1 +2 +3
    • Pain Scale (0-10)
      • 0-10
    • Next Appointment
      • Days, weeks
      • How far out is next appointment?

Form C - Problems and Medications Section

Looking on Form C at the problems/plans section (above visit summary/flowsheet) consider the following:

  • There can be a medication listed that does not correlate with a problem
    • ex: prenatal vitamins - the problem is pregnancy, but it may not be listed
  • There can be a problem listed that does not correlate with a medication
    • ex: patient chose not to take medication
    • ex: no medications available for a particular problem
  • Both problems and medications will often be prefixed with an abbreviation to determine the type of problem/medication
    • ex: Hx, Rx, current, patient reported
  • The intent of this section is to collect all problems that are significant, to either the pregnancy or the patient
    • ex: tonsillectomy at age 10 IS NOT significant to either patient or pregnancy (and thus would not be collected)
    • ex: exposure to Rubella in a non-immune patient IS significant to the pregnancy, but not to the patient
    • ex: previous ectopic pregnancies IS significant to both pregnancy and patient
    • ex: blindness IS significant to the patient, but not to the pregnancy
  • The data collected here is usually done so by the ob-gyn practice and not from any outside sources - such as the patient's PCP
