Definition This value set specifies the type of behavioral health assessment instrument encoded in LOINC, e.g., Child and Adolescent Service Intensity Instrument (CASII), Global Appraisal of Individual Needs (GAIN), Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF/GAS), etc. LOINC is the recommended standard code system for Assessments and Assessment sections. Each authority is free to use which ever instrument they choose, but each unique assessment instrument should be added to LOINC if it does not already exist to promote interoperability. Note: Axis-V assessments (e.g. CGAS, GAF) are listed here because they may be documented as assessment scores.
Description This value set consists of LOINC code to specify which standardized assessment was administered to a client.
