Optional variables to qualify

Would be better if it allowed some optional (not required) variables to qualify some of the measures. For weight, the clothing worn. For blood pressure and pulse, the body position (sitting, standing, reclining), cuff size. Oxygen may be delivered as %O2 or as liters per minute, so having both variables for both delivery methods would be better.

Loinc code for Weight Percentile

This is regarding Weight for length percentile. Is it ok if we display weight for length percentile to only age 0-36 months then it reads value as WEIGHT %TILE OBS with LOINC  code 8336-0. LOINC – 77606-2 is the loin code for Weight for length Percentile. Is it required to display weight percentile or weight per length percentile as per USCDI. Also the Vital signs form is customized by the Customer. So if they have not chosen weight percentile is Vital signs form, then it will not appear in CCDA.

NCPDP Comment

NCPDP recommends ONC to add NCPDP SCRIPT Standard Version2017071 as an acceptable standard.
