14.9 Resource Evidence - Content

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

The Evidence resource describes the conditional state (population and any exposures being compared within the population) and outcome (if specified) that the knowledge (evidence, assertion, recommendation) is about.

The scope of the Evidence resource is to describe the conditional state (population and exposures being considered or compared within a population) with or without the outcomes that knowledge (evidence, assertion, recommendation) is about. The Evidence resource is a commonly bundled series of evidence variables from the "PICO" specification of medical knowledge: Population - the population within which exposures and outcomes are being considered Intervention - the conditional state or exposure state being described for which one is expressing the risk of or effect on an outcome Comparison - the alternative conditional state or alternative exposure state when one is comparing states for the effect on an outcome Outcome - the result or effect of an intervention or exposure in a population PICO (and its variants like PECO or PICOT) is a universal acronym used in evidence-based medicine communities to clearly express research questions and evidence findings. The Evidence resource allows expression of the higher-order concept for recommendations in healthcare where multiple outcomes are considered, and the higher-order concept/combination for framing research questions.

The Evidence resource references the EvidenceVariable resource two or more times to clearly specify the relationship among evidence variable concepts in framing a research question, evidence assertion, or recommendation.

Evidence (DomainResource)An absolute URI that is used to identify this evidence when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or an instance; also called its canonical identifier. This SHOULD be globally unique and SHOULD be a literal address at which at which an authoritative instance of this evidence is (or will be) published. This URL can be the target of a canonical reference. It SHALL remain the same when the evidence is stored on different serversurl : uri [0..1]A formal identifier that is used to identify this evidence when it is represented in other formats, or referenced in a specification, model, design or an instanceidentifier : Identifier [0..*]The identifier that is used to identify this version of the evidence when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or instance. This is an arbitrary value managed by the evidence author and is not expected to be globally unique. For example, it might be a timestamp (e.g. yyyymmdd) if a managed version is not available. There is also no expectation that versions can be placed in a lexicographical sequence. To provide a version consistent with the Decision Support Service specification, use the format Major.Minor.Revision (e.g. 1.0.0).
