The Flowsheet data model is used to communicate discrete clinical data to or from an EHR system. Flowsheet data includes both inpatient and outpatient assessment information, vitals, patient-reported outcomes or questionnaires, and any other discrete clinical documentation.

The Flowsheet data model is almost identical to the Device data model except for one key difference: the Device data model requires a device ID to match the results with the patient's chart while the Flowsheets model (and almost every other data model) requires a patient ID. The Flowsheet data model also differs from the Results data model in that the flowsheet data is continuous, whereas results are generally a one-time outcome of an order. Check out the Results data model if you're interested in results from an ordered test.
