Yes, probably. So the question is whether there is a need for the distinction within the HELD request (though as Richard points out, the fundamental question goes further afield). If the recipient (beholder) may not get everything they need from a given form, then there's a need to ensure that the correct form can be sourced by the provider of the LO (HELD request scenario). But, also, given two LO's to choose from (not the HELD request scenario) and a provider knows they need to choose one or other form, how can they tell which is which? The latter is where I can see it would need to be part of the PIDF-LO information. Anyway - it would be good to hear from some different jurisdictions just how real the issue is. Obviously it's not going to be good for emergency services (or value-added services depending on which civic-bias the LIS adopts) if there's no way to provide a distinguished request/response.

The mechanism chosen to support what is termed 'postal' and 'jurisdictional' location types is to utilize the same LO type and add the appropriate fields. If in fact there are some 'overlapping' fields, the same tag used for different purposes depending on the location type, then utilizing the same type for both purposes was probably not a wise choice (should be remedied). If there are no 'overlapping' fields, then the beholder can simply utilize the respective fields that match the use case. -Marc- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This message is for the designated recipient only and may contain privileged, proprietary, or otherwise private information.
