Many are replacing PACS, RIS & Ordercomms. I think it would be useful for us & suppliers if we as a community can agree on naming of data fields for NHS. I would value everybody's comments on this. These are common data fields in use in these systems. I have tried to use common terms--so that we minimise the training requirements.
a) Requester b) Grade of Requester c) Requesting Responsible Consultant/GP d) Current Responsible Consultant/GP e) Patient Location at Request f) Current Patient Location g) Date of Request h) Date of Exam/Study i) Date of Report j) Exam Description k) Workflow Status l) Reporter m) Grade of Reporter n) Clinical History o) Patient Location Types (Inpatient, Outpatients, GP etc) p) Requesting Department q) Reporting Department r) Priority s) Operator

Some of this is covered by the NHS data dictionary - no point reinventing the wheel.
Thanks Phil. Yes, requesters reporters & operators now are multi-departmental. Term "Designation" does seem better. I have also incorporated it with the name- a) Requester Name (with Designation) b) Requesting Responsible Consultant/GP c) Current Responsible Consultant/GP d) Patient Location at Request e) Current Patient Location f) Date of Request g) Date of Exam/Study h) Date of Report i) Exam Description j) Workflow Status k) Reporter Name (with Designation) l) Clinical History m) Patient Location Types (Inpatient, Outpatients, GP etc) n) Requesting Department o) Reporting Department p) Workflow Priority q) Operator Name (with Designation)
Paul, I did not find any conflicts with the NHS dictionary.
