VhDir Implementation Guide CI Build

This is the Continuous Integration Build of the VhDir Implementation Guide, based on FHIR Version 4.0.0. See the Directory of published versions

StructureDefinition-vhdir-location

This profile sets minimum expectations for searching for and fetching information associated with a location. It identifies which core elements, extensions, vocabularies and value sets SHALL be present in the Location resource when using this profile.

Background & Scope

A location is the physical place where healthcare services are provided, practitioners are employed, organizations are based, etc. Locations can range in scope from a room in a building to a geographic region/area.

This profile modifies the base Lractitioner resource in the following manner:

  • Constrains the cardinality of location.status (1..1), location.operationalStatus (0..0), location.mode (0..0), location.telecom.system (1..1), and location.telecom.value (1..1),

  • All references SHALL conform to the appropriate Validated Healthcare Directory Implementation Guide profile

  • Adds extensions:

  1. Identifier status (1..1) - indicates the status of a location’s identifier
  2. Via intermediary (0..1) - a reference to an alternative point of contact for this location
  3. Available time (0..*) - indicates when a location is available for contact
  4. Boundary-geojson (0..*) - indicates a region/area for the location
  5. Accessibility (0..*) - indicates accessibility options available at the location (e.g. handicap accessibility)
  6. EHR (0..*) - provides information about the EHR product(s) used at the location
  7. NewPatients (0..*) - indicates whether the location is accepting new patients
  8. NewPatientProfile (0..*) - a description of the type of patients the location accepts (e.g. pediatric only)
  9. Restriction (0..*) - indicates whether disclosure of any data associated with a location is restricted

Examples:

The following are example uses for the vhdir-location profile:

Mandatory Data Elements

The following data-elements are mandatory (i.e data MUST be present). These are presented below in a simple human-readable explanation. The Formal Profile Definition below provides the formal summary, definitions, and terminology requirements.

Each Location must have:

  1. One coded value in location.status

Quick Start

Below is an overview of the required set of RESTful FHIR interactions - for example, search and read operations - for this profile. See the Conformance requirements for a complete list of supported RESTful interactions for this IG.

Supported Searches

GET [base]/Location?accessibility=[code]

Support: MAY support search by the location-accessibility parameter

  • including the modifiers: text

GET [base]/Location?address=[string]

Support: SHALL support search by the location-address parameter

  • including the modifiers: contains, exact

GET [base]/Location?endpoint=[id]

Support: SHOULD support search by the location-endpoint parameter

  • with a target type: Endpoint
  • including these search paramaters which may be chained: endpoint-identifier, endpoint-connection-type, endpoint-organization

GET [base]/Location?identifier=[code]

Support: SHALL support search by the location-identifier parameter

  • including the modifiers: text, ofType

GET [base]/Location?identifier-assigner=[id]

Support: MAY support search by the location-identifier-assigner parameter

  • with a target type: Organization
  • including the modifiers: below
  • including these search paramaters which may be chained: organization-identifier, organization-name

GET [base]/Location?new-patient=[code]

Support: SHOULD support search by the location-new-patient parameter


GET [base]/Location?new-patient-network=[id]

Support: SHOULD support search by the location-new-patient-network parameter

  • with a target type: Organization
  • including these search paramaters which may be chained: organization-identifier, organization-name, organization-partof

GET [base]/Location?organization=[id]

Support: SHALL support search by the location-organization parameter

  • with a target type: Organization
  • including the modifiers: above, below
  • including these search paramaters which may be chained: organization-identifier, organization-name, organization-address, organization-partof, organization-type

GET [base]/Location?partof=[id]

Support: SHOULD support search by the location-partof parameter

  • with a target type: Location

  • including these search paramaters which may be chained: location-identifier, location-type, location-address, location-organization

GET [base]/Location?contains=-83.694810|42.256500

Support: MAY support search by the location-contains parameter

This is a special search parameter which might leverage a systems geo-spatial features to test that the geocoded point provided (expressed as [latitude]|[longitude] using the WGS84 datum) is contained by the boundary stored in the standard extension location-boundary-geojson

Support for multiple points can also be provided using the , syntax which is interpretted as the location returned in the search contains at least 1 of the provided co-ordinates.

Support: SHALL support search by the location-status parameter


GET [base]/Location?type=[code]

Support: SHALL support search by the location-type parameter
