Mode of Diagnosis

The diagnosis specifies a patient’s concern/problem after a series of diagnostic tests and screening procedures by the healthcare provider. Beyond the encounter diagnosis (existing USCDI data element), the Encounter Information should include the mode of diagnosis. The key to cancer treatment is the type of tumor and the encounter data must include how the diagnosis was assessed as well as the critical features on pathology (including modern molecular tumor profiling).
