Data Element

Procedure Sex For Clinical Use

A clinical sex category based upon detailed observations typically associated with the designation of male and female that is to be used for determining clinical parameters associated with a procedure.


Change the name to Procedure Sex Parameter for Clinical Use

After considerable discussion within the Gender Harmony Project, the SFCU element will be renamed to Sex Parameter for Clinical Use (SPCU) in the final HL7 standards to be published this year (V2.9.1, FHIR R5, CDA companion guide.) This means all the specific SPCU data elements should be renamed to align with this phrasing. In this case the name of this element should be Procedure Sex Parameter for Clinical Use.
