Term Description

The Communication of Critical Results section includes notification to health care providers of critical or discrepant findings for a patient. The section describes the specific finding, whether it is critical or discrepant, how it was communicated (personally or notified by another approved mode of communication for critical results), who (e.g. name of reporting radiologist) communicated the findings, to whom (e.g. name of requesting provider) and when (date and time). The section also states the level of urgency (Red, Orange, Yellow, or not urgent) for the critical or discrepant result. Red indicates the finding is potentially immediately life-threatening, Orange indicates it could result in mortality/morbidity within 2-3 days, and Yellow indicates it could eventually result in mortality or morbidity if not treated.

Change Reason
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.
