This resource has 2 operations associated with it:

$applyApply
$data-requirementsData Requirements

For more information about operations, including how they are invoked, see Operations.

The apply operation realizes a definition in a specific context

The official URL for this operation definition is

 http://hl7.org/fhir/OperationDefinition/ActivityDefinition-apply

Formal Definition (as a OperationDefinition).

URL: [base]/ActivityDefinition/[id]/$apply

This is not an idempotent operation

In Parameters:
NameCardinalityTypeBindingProfileDocumentation
patient1..1Reference(Patient)

The patient that is the target of the activity to be applied

encounter0..1Reference(Encounter)

The encounter in context, if any

practitioner0..1Reference(Practitioner)

The practitioner in context

organization0..1Reference(Organization)

The organization in context

userType0..1CodeableConcept

The type of user initiating the request, e.g. patient, healthcare provider, or specific type of healthcare provider (physician, nurse, etc.)

userLanguage0..1CodeableConcept

Preferred language of the person using the system

userTaskContext0..1CodeableConcept

The task the system user is performing, e.g. laboratory results review, medication list review, etc. This information can be used to tailor decision support outputs, such as recommended information resources

setting0..1CodeableConcept

The current setting of the request (inpatient, outpatient, etc)

settingContext0..1CodeableConcept

Additional detail about the setting of the request, if any

Out Parameters:
NameCardinalityTypeBindingProfileDocumentation
return1..1Any

The resource that is the result of applying the definition

The result of invoking this operation is a resource of the type specified by the activity definition, with all the definitions resolved as appropriate for the type of resource. Any dynamicValue elements will be evaluated and the resulting value used for the values of the appropriate elements of the returned resource. If the ActivityDefinition includes library references, those libraries will be available to the evaluated expressions. If those libraries have parameters, those parameters will be bound by name to the parameters given to the operation

The data-requirements operation aggregates and returns the parameters and data requirements for the activity definition and all its dependencies as a single module definition library

The official URL for this operation definition is

 http://hl7.org/fhir/OperationDefinition/ActivityDefinition-data-requirements

Formal Definition (as a OperationDefinition).

URL: [base]/ActivityDefinition/[id]/$data-requirements

This is not an idempotent operation

Out Parameters:
NameCardinalityTypeBindingProfileDocumentation
return1..1Library

The result of the requirements gathering represented as a module-definition Library that describes the aggregate parameters, data requirements, and dependencies of the activity definition

Note: as this the only out parameter, it is a resource, and it has the name 'return', the result of this operation is returned directly as a resource

The effect of invoking this operation is to determine the aggregate set of data requirements and dependencies for the activity definition. The result is a Library resource with a type of module-definition that contains all the parameter definitions and data requirements of the activity definition and any libraries referenced by it. Implementations SHOULD aggregate data requirements intelligently (i.e. by collapsing overlapping data requirements)

Request data requirements for the administer zika virus exposure assessment activity definition (Request):

GET [base]/ActivityDefinition/administer-zika-virus-exposure-assessment/$data-requirements

Returned on successful evaluation (Response):

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
