Level 2 Data Element: Location of Procedure

IMO supports the inclusion of proposed Level 2 Data Elements for Procedure Timing and Location of Procedure in USCDI V3.  These data elements are incorporated in mature technical specifications including CDA R2 Implementation Guide: Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) Reports, Release 3. ONC certified HIT should be capable of exchanging these data elements.  

Unified Comment from CDC

CDC considers this element to be high priority and strongly recommends its inclusion in the USCDI V3
