14.8 Resource EventDefinition - Content

Clinical Decision Support Work GroupMaturity Level: 0 Trial UseSecurity Category: Anonymous Compartments: Not linked to any defined compartments

The EventDefinition resource provides a reusable description of when a particular event can occur.

This resource is a definition resource from a FHIR workflow perspective - see Workflow, specifically Definition.

The EventDefinition provides a reusable description of an event. The resource supports describing different kinds of events, including named events, periodic events, and data-based events. For each of these, the resource also supports a formal description of the event. For example, a 'monitor-emergency-admissions' event can be a named event, but also provide a formal description of the event as monitoring for encounters that occur in emergency department locations.

The EventDefinition resource is intended to be used to provide a reusable description of events for use by other resources that require event definition, such as Subscription. EventDefinition is a definition of an event that could occur, whereas Subscription is asking for notification of events when they occur.
