Back  RFI # 47: Distinctions Between Code Values in Data Elements 620 and 621

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

Todd Cochrane

Description

What are the distinctions between and/or precise explanations of Simple Data Element 620 code value descriptions I4 Implementation "Not Used" Segment Present versus I9 Implementation Dependent "Not Used" Segment Present and Simple Data Element 621 code value descriptions I10 Implementation "Not Used" Data Element Present versus I13 Implementation Dependent "Not Used" Data Element Present. Are the I9 and I13 descriptions somehow related to Implementation Guide and Type 3 Technical Report "situational" conditions?

Response

Codes I4 and I10 should be used when the message sender has sent a element or segment (respectively) marked as "Not used" within the implementation guide. Codes I9 and I13 should be used when the message sender has sent a element or segment (respectively) marked "Dependent" when the specified dependency has not be met.
