The IPS problem section lists and describes clinical problems or conditions currently being monitored for the patient. This section can record different kinds of problems as, but not limited to, chronic diseases (e.g. COPD, diabetes, hypertension); contagious diseases; nutritional problems (e.g. metabolic diseases); and so on.The optional author and informant elements are used, when necessary, to convey the provenance and authoring of the section content in case it is different from what is announced in the CDA header.
