C.30.2 Unified Procedure Step Scheduled Procedure Information Module

Table C.30.2-1 specifies the Attributes that describe the Unified Procedure Step (UPS) to be performed. The UPS may or may not be scheduled for a specific time or device, or may simply represent a piece of work that is intended to be performed.

Attribute Description

Scheduled Procedure Step Priority

(0074,1200)

Priority of the scheduled Procedure Step

Human performers that are scheduled to be involved or responsible for performing the Procedure Step.

Zero or more Items shall be included in this Sequence.

>Human Performer Code Sequence

(0040,4009)

Human performer that is involved or responsible for performing the Procedure Step.

Only a single Item shall be included in this Sequence.

>>Include Table 8.8-1 “Code Sequence Macro Attributes”

No Baseline CID is defined.

Name of the human performer.

>Human Performer's Organization

(0040,4036)

Organization to which the human performer is accountable for the activities in the Procedure Step.

Scheduled Procedure Step Start DateTime

(0040,4005)

Expected Completion DateTime

(0040,4011)

Date and time at which the Procedure Step is expected to be completed.

Scheduled Procedure Step Expiration Date Time

(0040,4008)

Date and time after which the Procedure Step is meaningless or undesirable.

Scheduled Workitem Code Sequence

(0040,4018)

Coded description of the Procedure Step.

Only a single Item shall be included in this Sequence.

>Include Table 8.8-1 “Code Sequence Macro Attributes”

Baseline CID is CID 9231 “Workitem Definition”.

Note

This CID has generic workitems. An implementation may choose to define more specific, detailed workitems.

Scheduled Processing Parameters Sequence

(0074,1210)

Processing parameters to be used by the performing system when carrying out the Procedure Step.

Zero or more Items shall be included in this Sequence.

>Include Table 10-2 “Content Item Macro Attributes Description”

>Content Item Modifier Sequence

(0040,0441)

Sequence that specifies modifiers for a Scheduled Processing Parameter Content Item.

One or more Items are permitted in this Sequence.

>>Include Table 10-2 “Content Item Macro Attributes Description”

Input Readiness State

(0040,4041)

Readiness state of the Input Information Sequence (0040,4021) and the referenced instances.

Enumerated Values:

INCOMPLETE

The Input Information Sequence is not yet complete and additional instance references might be added.

UNAVAILABLE

The Input Information Sequence is complete but one or more of the referenced instances might not yet be available from the referenced source(s).

READY

The Input Information Sequence is complete and the referenced instances are available from the referenced sources.

Note

  1. If the Procedure Step does not require input information, the Input Readiness State may be READY when the Input Information Sequence is empty.

  2. There is no guarantee that the referenced instances will still be available at the referenced location when retrieval is attempted.

  3. There is no requirement to confirm the presence of referenced media prior to setting the Input Readiness State to READY.

Input Information Sequence

(0040,4021)

References to Information Objects needed to perform the scheduled Procedure Step.

Referencing unencapsulated HL7 documents is described further in Section C.12.1.1.6. See also Input Readiness State (0040,4041).

Zero or more Items shall be included in this Sequence.

>Include Table 10-3b “Referenced Instances and Access Macro Attributes”

Study Instance UID

(0020,000D)

Unique Study identification that shall be used for the created Composite SOP Instances resulting from this Unified Procedure Step.

Output Destination Sequence

(0040,4070)

The destination to which the performer is requested to store the output objects generated

Zero or more Items shall be included in this Sequence.

Each Item constitutes a separate storage request.

The performing system might not support the requested storage protocol or not be configured for the desired destination. The performing system may, additionally or as a fallback, be configured to store output objects to a default destination or retain them locally.

The actual location(s) to which instances are successfully stored is recorded in the Output Information Sequence (0040,4033).

Whether to report failure of one or more of the storage requests as a failure of the work item is at the discretion of the performing system.
