A number of partner scenarios have warranted us to create a type which stores an occurrence of a Health event in a consumers life.

Consider the case of baby development stages. A parent would like to record various events in various developmental categories for the baby. We  need a way to capture that the baby rolls over as a part of movement aspect of the baby’s development growth. Similar scenarios are evident post-surgery rehabilitation especially orthopedic. A consumer might want to track stages of movement gain in the surgery area. Additionally a consumer might want to track Health events around traumas, injuries and hospital visits.

Looking at the above scenarios, we are thinking of combining them in to one Health Event type. The Health Event type will enable a user to input and store a Health Event in HealthVault.

We are currently thinking of this type to have the following essential data elements -

Element

Type

Information

Notes

Occurrence

Required

Category

t-codable-value

Kind of information e.g. Pediatric

Vocabulary for Health-Events-category. Our use-cases suggest one category per event.


1..1

Yes

Event

t-codable-value

Health Event name e.g. Developmental Movement

Vocabulary for the appropriate Health Event. More event vocabularies will be defined over time.


1..1

Yes

When

d-datetime

When this activity was recorded

  1..1

Yes

As an example data for the above type one can think of following as a good example:

   1:  <health-event>
   2:    <category>
   3:      <text>Pediatric</text>
   4:      <code>
   5:        <value>Pediatric</value>
   6:        <family>wc</family>
   7:        <type>event-categories</type>
   8:        <version>1</version>
   9:      </code>
  10:    </category>
  11:    <event>
  12:      <text>Rolls Over</text>
  13:      <code>
  14:        <value>RollsOver</value>
  15:        <family>wc</family>
  16:        <type>event-pediatric-developmental-movement</type>
  17:        <version>1</version>
  18:      </code>
  19:    </event>
  20:    <when>
  21:      <date>
  22:        <y>2005</y>
  23:        <m>1</m>
  24:        <d>1</d>
  25:      </date>
  26:      <time>
  27:        <h>6</h>
  28:        <m>0</m>
  29:        <s>0</s>
  30:        <f>0</f>
  31:      </time>
  32:    </when>
  33:  </health-event>

Please let us know your feedback.

We will appreciate any other use cases which this type can solve. Examples and appropriate data will help us as well.
