Notes:
APPOINTMENT DATE is the same as attribute APPOINTMENT DATE.

Usage in the CDS:
The Outpatient and Future Outpatient CDS Types use the APPOINTMENT DATE as the "CDS ORIGINATING DATE" as a mandatory requirement of the CDS Exchange Protocol, see CDS ACTIVITY DATE.

For the Future Outpatient CDS where no APPOINTMENT DATE is available from the healthcare system, a default date value of 2999-12-31 may be applied.

Care must be taken to generate the correct CDS Exchange Protocol when using this default value.

When submitting a Referral To Treatment Clock Stop Administrative Event via the CDS V6-1 Type 020 - Outpatient Commissioning Data Set/CDS V6-2 Type 020 - Outpatient Commissioning Data Set, APPOINTMENT DATE is equivalent to the REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD END DATE carried in the record.
