Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the extension.

Extension
Element IdExtension
Definition

A reference to an extensible value set specified in a parent profie in order to allow a conformance checking tool to validate that a code not in the extensible value set of the profile is not violating rules defined by parent profile bindings.

Control0..* This element is affected by the following invariants: ele-1
Comments

This extension is only needed where the binding strength is 'extensible', the parents are also 'extensible'. This allows a validator to work around the fact that restricting extensible value sets in child profiles loses constraints out of the parent profiles, (e.g. codes to be used when appropriate).

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.

Control0..1
Typestring
Extension.extension
Element IdExtension.extension
Definition

An Extension

TypeExtension
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.

Control1..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/elementdefinition-inheritedExtensibleValueSet
Extension.value[x]
Element IdExtension.value[x]
Definition

Value of extension - may be a resource or one of a constrained set of the data types (see Extensibility in the spec for list).
