Term Description

A public health case report document contains common or standardized data elements for reportable conditions, such as hepatitis B, tuberculosis, and tularemia. Healthcare facilities or providers may use this document to send reportable condition data to state and local public health departments. Data elements include the patient's immunization records, encounters, diagnostic testing, social history, and treatments. This term was originally created for, but not limited in use to, the HL7 Implementation Guide for CDA R2: Public Health Case Reports.

Change Reason
Changed Component from 'Public heath case report' to 'Case report', System from "^Patient" to '{Setting}', and Method from null to 'Public health' to harmonize with the current LOINC Document Ontology model. These changes were based on Clinical LOINC Committee review and approval on 2/2014.; 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.
