ConceptAge assertion
DescriptionA statement about the age of an individual at a point in time.
UseUse to record a statement about the age of an individual at a point in time, as clinical context for the other information in the same COMPOSITION. This archetype is structured to support the recording of either chronological or adjusted age independently, while also providing the capability to record both simultaneously for comparison purposes. Both the Chronological age and Adjusted age are calculated based on actual or estimated dates of birth and/or due date. The EVENT structure from the reference model can be used to specify whether the age assertion relates to a current point in time or a historical point in time. Use cases include, but are not limited to: - simultaneously record the chronological age and adjusted age alongside child growth parameters; - record the age of an individual at the time of recording as context for the other content in a document, such as the age of a child at the time of referral; - record the age of the mother (designated as the subject of care at ENTRY level) at the time of recording within a newborn's record; or - the age of an individual at the time of filling out a health assessment questionnaire. - the basis for calculated reference values for physiological measurements. For example in the CHA₂DS₂-VASc score archetype.
MisuseNot to be used to display the individual's current age in the user interface of an electronic health record. Use a formal patient registry or archetypes based on the openEHR demographic information model for this purpose. Not to be used to record skeletal age, use OBSERVATION.skeletal_age for this purpose. Not to be used to record the estimate or known period or duration of the pregnancy or gestational age of the foetus or new born, use OBSERVATION.gestational_age_assertion for this purpose. Not to be used to record the Biological age, which refers to the condition of an individual's body systems, indicating how well or poorly the body is functioning relative to the expected norm for their chronological age - use approriate archetypes for this purpose. Not to be used to record an assessment of the mental, cognitive or developmental age, or similar assements, which refers to the age that reflects an individual's functions and abilities. Use an appropriate archetype for this purpose. Not to be used to record an estimated age in a forensic report or for an unconscious inidividual - use an approriate archetype for this purpose.
PurposeTo record a statement about the age of an individual at a point in time, as clinical context for the other information in the same COMPOSITION.
