Version No:1.0
Subject:NHS Data Model and Dictionary Modelling Changes - Other Person Observation
Effective Date:Immediate
Reason for Change:Change to Data Standards
Publication Date:19 January 2010

Background:

The NHS Data Model and Dictionary Service are currently working with the Department of Health and Information Centre for Health and Social Care to develop a number of Data Sets.

During the business analysis stage, it has been identified that these Data Sets cover a number of common areas which are either not currently in the NHS Data Model and Dictionary or amendments are required to make the current information suitable for use in these Data Sets.

This Data Set Change Notice adds the common data items and associated data modelling changes for "Other Person Observation" into the NHS Data Model and Dictionary in preparation for these Data Sets. The changes are detailed in the "Summary of changes" below.

The primary purpose is to introduce a new Class, “Other Person Observation” into the NHS Data Model to support the new data sets currently under development. This new Class allows observations made regarding a person and excludes coded classifications and measured observations, i.e. not categorised or measured. This Class complements the existing Classes:

These changes do not need to be implemented in end-user systems until the Data Set Change Notices for the specific data sets come into effect. Other specific items will be added to the Data Sets during development.

CATEGORY VALUED PERSON OBSERVATION   Changed Description
MEASURED PERSON OBSERVATION   Changed Description
OTHER PERSON OBSERVATION   New Class
