Indivo Document Schema: Simple Clinical NoteΒΆ

A full clinical note needs to contain a number of coded problems, etc. Some hospital systems do not have fully normalized clinical notes, in which case they can use this schema to store some simple attributes and the main free-form text of the note.

See also Indivo Coded Values and Indivo Provider Schema.
