StructureDefinition-vhdir-practitioner

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

Background & Scope

A practitioner is a person who is directly or indirectly involved in providing healthcare.

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

  • Constrains the cardinality of practitioner.active (1..1), practitioner.name (1..1), practitioner.name.family (1..1), practitioner.name.given (1..*), practitioner.telecom.system (1..1), practitioner.telecom.value (1..1), practitioner.photo (0..1), and practitioner.qualification.issuer (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 practitioner’s identifier
  2. Via intermediary (0..1) - a reference to an alternative point of contact for this practitioner
  3. Available time (0..*) - indicates when a practitioner is available for contact
  4. Geolocation (0..1) - indicates the absolute geographic location of a practitioner’s address
  5. Endpoint (0..*) - reference(s) to the endpoint resource, indicating technical endpoints for the practitioner independent of their role at an organization (such as a personal Direct address)
  6. Accessibility (0..*) - indicates accessibility options offered by the practitioner (e.g. cultural competence)
  7. Proficiency (0..1) - indicates a practitioner’s level of spoken proficiency with the language(s) specified in practitioner.communication
  8. DigitalCertificate (0..*) - a digital certificate associated with the practitioner
  9. Qualification (0..1) - provides additional information about a practitioner’s qualifications, including where they are valid and the current/historical status
  10. Restriction (0..*) - indicates whether disclosure of any data associated with a practitioner is restricted

Examples:

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