Part Description

LP72311-1   Consultation note
Consultation note is generated by a physician or nonphysician practitioner's (NPP) upon request for an opinion or advice from another physician or NPP. Consultations may involve face-to-face time with the patient, telemedicine visits, or a second opinion on a diagnosis that does not involve interaction with a patient. A consultation note is often provided to the referring physician or NPP and may include the reason for the referral, history of present illness, physical examination, and decision-making component (Assessment and Plan).

Change Reason
Edit made because this term is conformant to the Document Ontology axis values and therefore are being placed in this class.; Based on Clinical LOINC Committee decision during the September 2014 meeting, {Provider} was changed to {Author Type} to emphasize a greater breadth of potential document authors. At the September 2015 Clinical LOINC Committee meeting, the Committee decided to change {Author Type} to {Role} to align with the 'Role' axis name in the LOINC Document Ontology.; Because it is too difficult to maintain and because the distinction between documents and sections is not clear-cut nor necessary in most cases, the DOCUMENT_SECTION field has been deemed to have little value. The field has been set to null in the December 2017 release in preparation for removal in the December 2018 release. These changes were approved by the Clinical LOINC Committee.
