Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the extension.

Extension
Element IdExtension
Definition

References a location within a set of source text from which the discrete information described by this Resource/Element was extracted.

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()
der-1RuleCannot have length if offset is missing.extension.where(url='length').exists() implies extension.where(url='offset').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.

Cardinality0..1
Typestring
Extension.extension
Element IdExtension.extension
Definition

May be used to represent additional information that is not part of the basic definition of the element. To make the use of extensions safe and manageable, there is a strict set of governance applied to the definition and use of extensions. Though any implementer can define an extension, there is a set of requirements that SHALL be met as part of the definition of the extension.

Comments

There can be no stigma associated with the use of extensions by any application, project, or standard - regardless of the institution or jurisdiction that uses or defines the extensions. The use of extensions is what allows the FHIR specification to retain a core level of simplicity for everyone.

  • unordered

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 Valuereference
Extension.extension.value[x]
Element IdExtension.extension:reference.value[x]

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

ele-1RuleAll FHIR elements must have a @value or childrenhasValue() or (children().count() > id.count())
Extension.extension(path)
Element IdExtension.extension:path
Definition

Corresponds to the element within the resource containing the text.

Cardinality0..1
TypeExtension
Comments

Follows the FHIRPath expression syntax used for OperationOutcome. If not present, then the resource must either be a Binary or a DocumentReference (with a single content element) and the content is the text represented by the instance or the attachment. If the DocumentReference has more than one 'content', then this path element SHALL be present to distinguish which repetition the derivation occurred from.
