12.18 Resource PlanDefinition - Content

Clinical Decision Support Work GroupMaturity Level: 2 Trial UseCompartments: Not linked to any defined compartments

This resource allows for the definition of various types of plans as a sharable, consumable, and executable artifact. The resource is general enough to support the description of a broad range of clinical artifacts such as clinical decision support rules, order sets and protocols.

This resource is a definition resource from a FHIR workflow perspective - see Workflow, specifically Definition.

A plan definition is a pre-defined group of actions to be taken in particular circumstances, often including conditional elements, options, and other decision points. The resource is flexible enough to be used to represent a variety of workflows, as well as clinical decision support and quality improvement assets, including order sets, protocols, and decision support rules.

PlanDefinitions can contain hierarchical groups of action definitions, where each specific action definition describes an activity to be performed (in terms of an ActivityDefinition resource), and each group defines additional behavior, relationships, and applicable conditions between the actions in the overall definition.

In addition to describing what should take place, each action in a plan definition can specify when and whether the action should take place. For when the action should be taken, the triggerDefinition element specifies the action should be taken in response to some trigger occurring (such as a particular point in a workflow being reached, or as the result of a prescription being ordered). For whether the action should be taken, the condition element can be used to provide an expression that evaluates to true or false to indicate the applicability of the action to the specific context.

The process of applying a PlanDefinition to a particular context typically produces request resources representing the actions that should be performed, typically grouped within a CarePlan and/or RequestGroup to capture relationships between the resulting request resources.

Each ActivityDefinition is used to construct a specific resource, based on the definition of the activity and combined with contextual information for the particular patient that the plan definition is being applied to.

As with the ActivityDefinition, a PlanDefinition may provide information about how to transform the activity to a specific intent resource, either by specifying a StructureMap that can be used to perform the transformation completely, or by specifying values for specific elements of the resulting resource using dynamicValue elements in the action.

Note that these mechanisms are provided on both the ActivityDefinition and the PlanDefinition to allow both reusable transformation descriptions, as well as customization of those descriptions within specific contexts. As such, the transform descriptions specified on the PlanDefinition override transform descriptions defined on the ActivityDefinition.

Dynamic values within the definitions can be provided by specifying the expression directly, or by referencing an expression defined within a library. For more information on how to reference expressions within resources, refer to the Using Expressions topic.

As an example, the Low Suicide Risk example order set from the Clinical Decision Support Knowledge Artifact Specification can be represented using the PlanDefinition and ActivityDefinition structures: Low Suicide Risk Example Order Set.

In addition to the representation of PlanDefinitions, the $apply operation allows PlanDefinitions to be realized for a specific context such as a patient, practitioner, or institution. For Order Sets specifically, this operation is expected to place the orders defined by the order set, consistent with the service functional requirements defined by the Order Set specification .

The PlanDefinition resource is used to describe series, sequences, or groups of actions to be taken, while the ActivityDefinition resource is used to define each specific step or activity to be performed.

As the name implies, the PlanDefinition resource is strictly definitional. It does not represent the intention to take any action, nor does it represent that any actions have been taken. Rather, the resource provides a definition that can be applied in the appropriate circumstances. When the plan definition is applied, the result will in general be a set of actions that should be (or potentially even have been) performed.

Note that the PlanDefinition still has action-level information, as well as a reference to an ActivityDefinition. The action-level information defined in the PlanDefinition itself is used to describe how the actions are related to each other within the plan, where the ActivityDefinition contains only information about the activity itself.

The following diagram illustrates the relationship between the PlanDefinition and ActivityDefinition resources, as well as a typical realization to CarePlan, RequestGroup, and Request resources:

Note to implementers: There is some overlap between the content that can be specified in PlanDefinition.actionDefinition and the ActivityDefinition resource. Part of the work for FHIR Release 4 will be to resolve the overlap and this will likely result in some minor changes to the structures.

There is also no expectation that versions can be placed in a lexicographical sequence. To provide a version consistent with the Decision Support Service specification, use the format Major.Minor.Revision (e.g. 1.0.0).

PlanDefinition (DomainResource)An absolute URI that is used to identify this plan definition when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or an instance. This SHALL be a URL, SHOULD be globally unique, and SHOULD be an address at which this plan definition is (or will be) published. The URL SHOULD include the major version of the plan definition. For more information see [Technical and Business Versions](resource.html#versions)url : uri [0..1]A formal identifier that is used to identify this plan definition when it is represented in other formats, or referenced in a specification, model, design or an instanceidentifier : Identifier [0..*]The identifier that is used to identify this version of the plan definition when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or instance. This is an arbitrary value managed by the plan definition author and is not expected to be globally unique. For example, it might be a timestamp (e.g. yyyymmdd) if a managed version is not available. There is also no expectation that versions can be placed in a lexicographical sequence. To provide a version consistent with the Decision Support Service specification, use the format Major.Minor.Revision (e.g. 1.0.0). For more information on versioning knowledge assets, refer to the Decision Support Service specification.

For example, a selection behavior of at-most-one indicates that of the sub-actions, at most one may be chosen as part of realizing the action definitionaction[0..*]An action to be taken as part of the planaction[0..*]
