INTRODUCTION This specification provides the definition of the Medical service report message (MEDRPT) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport. 1. SCOPE 1.1 Functional definition A Medical Service Report message is sent from a service provider to the service requester to report new results on performed investigations, to modify a previous result item or a complete result report or to cancel a previous result report. 1.2 Field of application The Medical service report message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry. 1.3 Principles The message fulfils the requirements of the European pre-standard concerning messages for exchange of laboratory information within clinical chemistry, clinical biochemistry, toxicology, clinical immunology, immunohaematology, haematology and clinical microbiology. The message may, however, also be used for other purposes as long as the user requirements are met. The CEN prENV New Laboratory Service Report message and the CEN prENV Laboratory Service Report Cancellation message may be considered as special cases of the CEN prENV Laboratory Service Report Modification message. The Laboratory Service Report Modification message may contain a mixture of new, change, cancel and other service types for the report itself and for the various result items whereas the New Laboratory Service Report message only contains the new service type for the report itself and the various result items and the Laboratory Service Report Cancellation message only contains the cancel service type for a complete report. The overall structure of the message is: - One message may include one or more service reports. - Every report may relate to zero, one or more service orders. - Every service report may contain one or more result items for the subject of investigation, each result item may be composed of zero, one or more other result items. - Every service report is related to one main subject of investigation (patient, animal or material), but may also include information about related subjects of investigation. - One message may report on one or more samples (from the same subject of investigation) or the subject of investigation itself. - An investigation may be connected to one or more samples or to the subject of investigation itself. - Every investigation may have one result. - Every result item may have zero, one or more related service providers. Most of the information sent from the requester to the receiving service provider may be returned to the requester in this message. With the exception of information in FTX segments, all information should primarily be expressed as codes. 2.
