Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the extension.

Extension
Element IdExtension
Definition

A concept that represents a set of ideas, abstractions, or things in the real world that can be identified with explicit boundaries and meaning and whose properties and behavior follow the same rules. It may be either a single concept or a group of associated concepts, abstractions, or things.

Cardinality0..1 This element is affected by the following invariants: ele-1
Comments

ObjectClass and Property are treated as a data model that can be mapped to, like any other. This extension merely captures the ObjectClass element as a discrete code. The information conveyed here should also be conveyed in human-readable form in the mapping.map element.

Invariants
Inherited by this element
ele-1RuleAll FHIR elements must have a @value or childrenhasValue() or (children().count() > id.count())
ext-1RuleMust have either extensions or value[x], not bothextension.exists() != value.exists()
Extension.id
Element IdExtension.id
Definition

Unique id for the element within a resource (for internal references). This may be any string value that does not contain spaces.

SlicingThis element introduces a set of slices. The slicing rules are:
  • unordered
  • Open
  • discriminators: value:url
Extension.url
Element IdExtension.url
Definition

Source of the definition for the extension code - a logical name or a URL.

Cardinality1..1
Typeuri
Comments

The definition may point directly to a computable or human-readable definition of the extensibility codes, or it may be a logical URI as declared in some other specification. The definition SHALL be a URI for the Structure Definition defining the extension.

Fixed Valuehttp://hl7.org/fhir/StructureDefinition/11179-objectClass
Extension.valueCoding
Element IdExtension.valueCoding
Definition

Value of extension - must be one of a constrained set of the data types (see Extensibility for a list).

Cardinality0..1
Terminology BindingA concept that represents a set of ideas, abstractions, or things in the real world that can be identified with explicit boundaries and meaning and whose properties and behavior follow the same rules; e.g. Person, Prescription, Encounter, etc.
