I was wondering about how other sites have handled implementing severity of an condition.
I am looking to represent the BOCK scale for food allergy reaction severity. This is a four point scale running from 0-3 where 0 represents a reaction not being present and 1-3 represent low, moderate, severe. 1-3 represent specific defined observable attributes, but those would be something understood by clinicians and researchers accessing the data, all I should need to do is indicate the level of severity.
I was wondering if anyone else has encountered a need to indicate severity, and how it was handled?
