Data State
Data State, in context of data lifecycle. States should include: origination (capture, collection), update (from previous content/value), verification (of data sourced by others (e.g., transcriptionist, scribe, student) or from automated device), transformation (e.g., from source system internal representation to exchange artifact (such as HL7 message, CDA document or FHIR resource), from exchange artifact to receiver internal representation). Provenance set includes the who, what, when, where and why as metadata for USCDI data classes and data elements. Data State is part of “what”. Data State 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 Data State 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.
