Detailed specifications for catalogs of medical devices

Resources and Profiles for all devices

The figure below shows the resources and profiles used to represent catalogs of medical devices.

Resources used by a catalog medical devices

When method 1 is chosen by the custodian of the catalog of devices, the catalog references its items: the Composition resource constrained by the Catalog profile to represent the whole catalog, references the items of this catalog from its Composition.section.entry elements.

When method 2 is chosen instead, the catalog is referenced by its items: Each DeviceDefinition resource constrained by the DeviceModel profile and representing an item of the catalog, references the Composition resource constrained by the CatalogHeader profile to represent the header of the catalog header, which holds the general properties of the catalog.

An item of the catalog describes a model or type of device, with its various identifiers, classifications, safety characteristics and properties, instantiated as a DeviceDefinition resource linked to a number of supporting resources providing further details.
