Link between goals and other clinical concepts

Hi Thomas, is that status similar to the mood idea of HL7 v3 / CDA in Acts?
About the values, I see "actual" and "target" as something useful, but what's "planned" for? It seems to overlap a little with the concept of INSTRUCTION to be something to do in the future.


Kind regards,
Eng. Pablo Pazos Gutiérrez

      Hey Hugh! How are you?

        I was afraid to reach that conclusion and hoping to an
          openEHR native solution.

        One thing I was thinking of was to specialize the current
          goal archetype to create, lets say, a body weight goal, is
          that a valid approach?


    another thing to note - there are thoughts of how we might add a
    proper 'epistemic status' field to the reference model, which would
    allow any observation data based on archetype X (e.g. BMI, BP etc)
    to be marked as 'actual', 'planned', 'target', etc etc. I've been
    working on and off on an initial
      classification of types of statements in health, which may
    provide some ideas.
