8.24 Resource ChargeItem - Content

Patient Administration Work GroupMaturity Level: 0 Trial UseSecurity Category: Patient Compartments: Device, Encounter, Patient, Practitioner, RelatedPerson

The resource ChargeItem describes the provision of healthcare provider products for a certain patient, therefore referring not only to the product, but containing in addition details of the provision, like date, time, amounts and participating organizations and persons. Main Usage of the ChargeItem is to enable the billing process and internal cost allocation.

Tracking Financial information is vital in Patient Administration and Finance systems in most Healthcare Organizations. The resource ChargeItem describes the charge for provision of healthcare provider products for a certain patient, therefore referring not only to the product, but containing in addition details of the provision, like date, time, amounts and participating organizations and persons. Main Usage of the ChargeItem is to enable the billing process and internal cost allocation. They are created as soon as the products are planned or provisioned, references to Encounters and/or Accounts can be maintained in a later process step.

The target of ChargeItem.definition may provide information on the Charge code such as pricing and inclusion/exclusion rules as well as factors that apply under certain conditions. In many cases however this information may have been drawn from sources outside of FHIR depending on the distribution format of the code catalogue. The ChargeItem assumes that such information is either implicitly known by the communicating systems or explicitly shared through the ChargeItem.definition. Therefore explicit pricing information is not shared within the ChargeItem resource. Also, the systems posting the ChargeItems are not expected to apply the rules associated with the charge codes as they may not know the whole context of the patient/encounter to evaluate such rules. It lies within the responsibility of a billing engine, to collect the ChargeItems in the context of an Account or Encounter at a certain point in time (e.g. discharge of the patient) and to evaluate the associated rules resulting in some of the ChargeItems to be set to the status "not billable" in case the rules exclude them from being billed, or to create financial transactions according to base price and factors. Additional references to Encounter/EpisodeOfCare, Patient/Group and Services provide further context to help billing systems determine the appropriate account and establish the clinical/financial context to evaluate the rules associated with the charge codes.

This resource is not an actual financial transaction (such as an item on an invoice or any concise monetary amount being transferred from one Account to another) but is the base administrative data that may be used by a billing engine to create the financial transactions based on rules, factors and base prices associated with the charge code.

Unlike the Financial Transaction the ChargeItem primarily describes the provision, whereas the Financial Transaction documents cash flow. Therefore, the Financial Transaction results from ChargeItems created via the subsequent billing- or cost allocation process.

The actual financial transaction resulting from the evaluation of these rules against the clinical and financial context may be represented in formats appropriate to the financial realm. These are considered out of scope for the FHIR Standard, as they are not specific to the healthcare domain. The FHIR Claim resource does contain line items, and this ChargeItem resource provides the source material for the billing engine to create the items on the claim (which may be different due to business rules).

This resource is referenced by itself and Invoice
