Unified Comment from CDC

  • CDC considers this element to be high priority and strongly recommends its inclusion in the USCDI V3  
  • CSTE supports inclusion of this measure into USCDI v3: Indicating international travel flag and country visited (with dates of travel and return to US) would be beneficial for some diseases. In general, public health would capture this information during a case investigation and think it might be a burden for clinical care to capture ALL travel (domestic and international) but in some cases, charts are reviewed for travel or the provider is interviewed for patient travel hx, so agree this is useful for some conditions.
