Diagnostic information means a clinical facility’s record of individuals who present for treatment, including the reason for the visit, chief complaint, presenting diagnosis, final diagnosis, and any pertinent lab results.

The definition of diagnostic is something related to the identification of a problem or disease. An example of a diagnostic test is an emissions test on a car. An example of diagnostic is a symptom that is characteristic of a particular disease and that helps doctors to recognize that illness.
The information provided by diagnostic technologies can have important implications for health systems and healthcare institutions. Diagnostic information can support cost containment by identifying patients in the early stages of chronic disease or at risk of disease onset (e.g., diabetes, cancer).
