Data Element

Information from the submission form

Action Taken
Action Taken, in context of the real-world occurrence (activity or event) that included collection of the USCDI dataset or data element. Actions include: assessment, history and physical, admission, discharge, transfer, order (e.g., for diagnostic test, for care, for therapy, for medications), result or interpretation (e.g., of diagnostic test), referral, consultation, care planning, observation... Provenance set includes the who, what, when, where and why as metadata for USCDI data classes and data elements. Action Taken is part of “what”. Action Taken must be associated with each USCDI dataset or data element that has a unique provenance set. Occurs when data is originated (captured, collected or sourced), updated, verified, attested, transformed (e.g., to/from exchange artifact such as HL7 v2 message, document or FHIR resource instance). Note that Action Taken is intrinsic to what the source EHR/HIT system already knows, thus it does not require extra data collection (burden) by the clinician or other end user.
