Travel History Data Class - L2 Data Elements as of 9.20.2023

  • Emory Healthcare submits its support for the inclusion of Travel History Location and Travel History Dates in draft USCDI v5 under a Travel Information data class.
  • Emory Healthcare is located in Atlanta, Georgia – home to the busiest airport in the world. As a hub for international and domestic travel, it is often important for both Emory Healthcare providers and the public health community to have the capacity to document and access to travel history in support of quality patient care.
  • Emory Healthcare acknowledges that travel history has limited applicability in some patient data collection use cases, and so cautions against standards or regulations that would make the collection of this data required.
