Hi, I’m new to the FHIR world but excited to leverage it.
One use case I have is to display a set of health measures like Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, and related measures. When observations are collected it matters if the patient was fasting or not in the context of the interpretation. And different reference ranges can be applied based on fasting vs. non-fasting. e.g.
- Non Fasting Levels: 175mg/dl or higher: abnormal result: should be followed up with a fasting test
- Fasting Levels: 500 mg/dL or higher: significant and severe hypertriglyceridemia
How can the observation and related resources be used to handle know the context of fasting vs. non-fasting and applying (if appropriate) a reference range that is different.
I hope I’m using the right lingo here as I’m new to this. Thank you
