Device

The SHR Device domain contains definitions relating to devices used to treat the person of record, either in measurements and observations, durable medical equipment used by the patient, and device implants.

Device

A specific durable physical device used in diagnosis or treatment. The value is the coding for a type of device, for example, a CPAP machine. The same device might be used on multiple patients.

Based On Entity

Type must be from DeviceVS
required The most specific code (lowest level term) describing the kind or sort of thing being represented.
DeviceUdi 0 or more Unique Device Identifier (UDI) Barcode string number for a device, assigned by the organization using the device.
VendorModelNumber optional The model number of the device, assigned by the manufacturer or vendor.
RelatedEncounter optional If content was generated during a patient encounter, related encounter is the encounter where the information was gained.
Author optional The person or organization who created the entry and is responsible for (and may certify) the content.
Informant optional The person or entity that provided the information in the entry, as distinct from who created the entry, e.g. the subject (patient), medical professional, family member, device or software program.

DeviceAction

A medical device or implanted device of a patient, independent of context of being recommended, used, or not used. Device use can be reported, directly observed, or inferred from clinical events associated with orders, prescriptions written, and other patient-reported information.

Based On Action

Subject required The person or thing that this entry relates to, usually the Person of Record. However, not all entries have health information specifically about the patient, but in different contexts, could refer to a fetus, family member (living or dead), device, location, organization, finding, condition, or intervention.
Device required A specific durable physical device used in diagnosis or treatment. The value is the coding for a type of device, for example, a CPAP machine. The same device might be used on multiple patients.
Implanted optional Whether this device is implanted in the body.
BodySite optional A location or structure in the body, including tissues, regions, cavities, and spaces, for example, right elbow, or left ventricle of the heart.
Type optional The most specific code (lowest level term) describing the kind or sort of thing being represented.
Category 0 or more A class or division of people or things having particular shared characteristics
ActionContext required The ontological status of the intervention, e.g., performed/not performed, requested/not requested.
RelatedEncounter optional If content was generated during a patient encounter, related encounter is the encounter where the information was gained.
Author optional The person or organization who created the entry and is responsible for (and may certify) the content.
Informant optional The person or entity that provided the information in the entry, as distinct from who created the entry, e.g. the subject (patient), medical professional, family member, device or software program.

DeviceNotUsed [Entry]

A record of a device not used by a patient, for example, no stent implanted.

Based On DeviceAction

ActionContext must be a NotPerformedContext
required The ontological status of the intervention, e.g., performed/not performed, requested/not requested.
Subject required The person or thing that this entry relates to, usually the Person of Record. However, not all entries have health information specifically about the patient, but in different contexts, could refer to a fetus, family member (living or dead), device, location, organization, finding, condition, or intervention.

RelatedEncounter optional If content was generated during a patient encounter, related encounter is the encounter where the information was gained.
Author optional The person or organization who created the entry and is responsible for (and may certify) the content.
Informant optional The person or entity that provided the information in the entry, as distinct from who created the entry, e.g. the subject (patient), medical professional, family member, device or software program.

Position in workflow.
Subject required The person or thing that this entry relates to, usually the Person of Record.
