Data Element

Corrected Estimated Due Date

The Estimated Due Date that has been corrected during the period before birth.


CDC's comment on behalf of CSTE for USCDI v5

CSTE strongly urges ONC to include Estimated due date and not just gestational age as an element in USCDI since data are exchanged at points in time and gestational age at the time of recording may differ from gestational age at the time of the data transmission or receipt. Including estimated due date fixes the maturity of the pregnancy in time, as opposed to gestational age. If gestational age is favored as a variable to use, then it must be accompanied by a date of recording of the gestational age which requires additional data capture.

CDC's Consolidated Comment for USCDI v5

  • Proposed change:
  1. Please REMOVE the following from "Use Case Description" because it does not use this data element: Vital Records Birth and Fetal Death Reporting
  2. Please update "Birth and Fetal Death Reporting" to "Birth and Fetal Death Reporting-Enhanced (BFDR-E)"
  • NACCHO supports CDC's comment.
