C.7.2.1.1 General Study Attribute Descriptions
C.7.2.1.1.1 Referring Physician, Physician of Record, Physician Reading Study, Consulting Physician

The model used for application of Attributes related to different functions of Physicians involved in the care of a Patient is shown in Figure C.7.2-1. Figure C.7.2-1 shows some of the relationships and information flows between physician roles that might be present in some healthcare business models.

Functions of Physicians

Figure C.7.2-1. Functions of Physicians


There can be an overlap of functions provided by any given physician. In this case, the various Attributes specifying the different roles would convey the same physician name.
