Devices used (applied)
Devices are an identifiable grouping of mobility devices (i.e., wheelchairs), implantable devices (i.e., pace makers), or other wearable devices (i.e. compression socks or venous foot pump) with significant impact on patient functionality and health. The QDM v5.5 notes that “Device represents an instrument, apparatus, implement, machine, contrivance, implant, in-vitro reagent, or other similar or related article, including a component part or accessory, intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease and not dependent on being metabolized to achieve any of its primary intended purposes.”
