4.11 Resource ExpansionProfile - Content

Vocabulary Work GroupMaturity Level: 2 Trial UseCompartments: Not linked to any defined compartments

Resource to define constraints on the Expansion of a FHIR ValueSet.

The purpose of the expansion profile is to allow a client that is using a terminology service to configure the behaviour of the terminology server in regard to how it builds expansions - and, in a similar manner, how it validates codes in value set. ExpansionProfiles are used for the following operations:

The ExpansionProfile can be passed either directly, or as a reference by its canonical URL.

The ExpansionProfile is used to configure the behaviour of a terminology server when it processes ValueSet resources. As such, there is a tight relationship between the two resources; ValueSets specify what codes are in the value set, while ExpansionProfile affect run time behaviour.

ExpansionProfiles do not change what codes are in a defined value set. They can never add codes to the value set. They can be used to reduce the number of codes returned in an expansion, but this is a reduced view of the value set, not a change in the value set itself. Note, though, the discussion about overriding versions below.

The ExpansionProfile resources allows a client to specify a particular version to use for a given code system, and that this version is used irrespective of any version stated in any value set. This has obvious safety issues, in that it may result in a value set expansion giving a different list of codes that is both wrong and unsafe, and implementers should only use this capability reluctantly. This feature is primarily defined to allow implementers to deal with situations where specifications have fallen into decay as time passes, and the specified versions of code systems can no longer be used at all.

In principle, well designed specifications should not be authored in a fashion that allows them to decay in this fashion, but the technical infrastructure, eco-system, and community are not yet in a position to make this a reality. For this reason, clients are allowed to override versions. Clients setting the ExpansionProfile.fixedVersion.mode to override need to ensure that this action is not unsafe in their context.

Some fields in the ExpansionProfile can result in the return of an expansion that contains a reduced set of information in the expansion. if any of these fields may alter the expansion, terminology servers SHALL mark their use in the ValueSet.expansion.parameters with the matching parameter name:

ExpansionProfile.fixedVersionfixedVersion (in addition to the normal 'version' parameter)
ExpansionProfile.activeOnlyactiveOnly
ExpansionProfile.excludeNotForUIexcludeNotForUI
ExpansionProfile.excludePostCoordinatedexcludePostCoordinated
