Create Derived Data Elements

A Derived Data Element a data element whose value is computed from a process performed by across another set of data elements. Once the derivation is completed, it appears to an end user as a different data element. Included for example might be the Derived Data Element, Person Age that would compute a person’s age based on the person’s birthdate.  The process to accomplish data element creation include:
