14.10 Resource EvidenceReport - Content

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

The EvidenceReport Resource is a specialized container for a collection of resources and codeable concepts, adapted to support compositions of Evidence, EvidenceVariable, and Citation resources and related concepts.

An evidence report is a structured presentation of any combination of evidence and related concepts. Evidence reports may bundle knowledge related to a single study or citation, and may bundle knowledge spanning multiple related studies or citations. Publishing such reports are extensively used by researchers, scholars, and evaluators to advance scientific knowledge, to decide whether more research is needed, to inform policy, to determine whether the literature has reached consensus, to inform clinical decision support, to substantiate the decisions being recommended, and for many other uses.

The subject of the report defines its scope and can be expressed with one or more subject.characteristic elements (for structured definitions) or one or more subject.note elements (for human-readable expressions). Specifying a research question by the population, intervention/exposure, comparator, and outcome (PICO) could be expressed with four characteristics.

Evidence reports may be dynamic, changing as new evidence accrues. The relatesTo element supports coding the relationships between EvidenceReport Resources.

The content of the EvidenceReport Resource is contained in any number of sections that can each contain any number of sections. Each section can have its focus defined using a codeable concept or reference to another resource. Each section can have designated authors that can be distinct from authors for the EvidenceReport Resource.

The content in a section can be of different forms and can include text (which itself can be uniquely represented human-expressed content and/or machine-generated from other content), entryClassifier (to express codeable concepts), entryReference (to express other FHIR Resources), entryReason (to represent empty sections as content), and section elements.

The EvidenceReport Resource is used for structured bundles and is not expected to replace simple lists or bundles where List and Bundle Resources can be used.

The EvidenceReport Resource is similar to a Composition Resource but the EvidenceReport is better suited for communicating reports about research and data analysis not specific to individual persons while the Composition Resource is better suited for healthcare related reports specific to individual persons as the subject.

The EvidenceReport Resource is used for data exchange for concepts beyond identification, location and contributor attribution. Where data exchange is limited to such things a Citation Resource may be used. An EvidenceReport Resource may reference a Citation Resource to itself in the citeAs element.

This resource is referenced by ResearchStudy.

This resource does not implement any patterns.
