Normalizing Height and Weight in HealthShare UCR?
I'm looking for guidance on how best to normalize Height and Weight values to standard units. For example, to accept height as Feet/Inches, Inches, and Centimeters from various sources, but always display Feet/Inches in Clinical Viewer, etc.
If anyone has done this before, please share details of how it was implemented. Things I'd be specifically interested in:
- Did you normalize on ingestion into the Edge Gateway, or on consumption by an Access Gateway or API?
- Using what configuration settings, code hooks, callbacks, etc.?
- How did you implement recognition of the source coding system? That is, to account for weight as lb, lbs, pounds, etc., and possibly not labeled.
- How did you preserve the original values in UCR and Health Insight?
