This is a meta model class.
A type of META ACTIVITY.
An activity can be concerned with the assessment (e.g. weigh patient, assess housing needs), diagnosis, treatment or care of a META PATIENT, or that supports the provision of care (request analysis of sample, recall patient) to a subject of care (e.g. META PATIENT).
Examples of a META CARE ACTIVITY include:
Out-Patient Attendance Consultant
Hospital Provider Spell
Each META CARE ACTIVITY may have one or more states which are identified by specific META CHANGE ACTIVITY STATE. Each state represents an instance of an event for the META CARE ACTIVITY.
A META CARE ACTIVITY may be broken down into a related series of subordinate META CARE ACTIVITIES all of which must be related to the owning META CARE ACTIVITY. Each subordinate META CARE ACTIVITY may be further broken down into a related series of subordinate META CARE ACTIVITIES and so on and so on.
For example, a Hospital Provider Spell could involve several Ward Stays, CLINICAL INTERVENTIONS or required activities such as x-rays to be carried out at different times during the period of the spell. Each of these CLINICAL INTERVENTIONS or activities are themselves META CARE ACTIVITIES each of which can be separately scheduled and provided in the same way as the Hospital Provider Spell itself.
This class is also known by these names:
