AAPM - OORO Support for Patient Reported RaceThe AAPM Operational Ontology for Radiation Oncology ( https://aapmbdsc.azurewebsites.net) noted several systems for identifying Patient Reported Race . HL7 Reference system was recommended as the primary system. https://www.hl7.org/fhir/v3/Race/cs.html Note that OORO named the element Patient Reported Race rather than Race, to emphasize that this characterization of the patient should be selected by the patient, not a second party. Patients note that the value selected for them by a provider can be incorrect.
