ARCHETYPE Specimen (openEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.specimen.v0)

ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.specimen.v0
ConceptSpecimen
DescriptionA specimen collected from an individual or related to that individual, for investigation or analysis.
UseUse to record details about a specimen collected from an individual or related to that individual, for investigation or analysis. This archetype is designed to be used in different contexts, for example within an INSTRUCTION archetype to describe the specimen that has to be taken, or describing the specimen which accompanies the laboratory request. It may also occur within an ACTION archetype for describing specimens taken as part of a surgical procedure. It will finally be used within a laboratory result archetype to describe the specimen being reported.
PurposeTo record details about a specimen collected from an individual or related to that individual, for investigation or analysis.
