Metadata, or data that describes other data.

Data Element

Information from the submission form

Physical Location
Location where action was taken and/or where dataset or data element was collected (captured, sourced). Location should include room (within) building (within) organization. Provenance set includes the who, what, when, where and why as metadata for USCDI data classes and data elements. Physical Location is part of “where”. Physical Location 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 Physical Location 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.
