14.5 Resource RequestGroup - Content

Clinical Decision Support Work GroupMaturity Level: 2 Trial UseCompartments: Device, Encounter, Patient, Practitioner, RelatedPerson

A group of related requests that can be used to capture intended activities that have inter-dependencies such as "give this medication after that one".

This resource is a request resource from a FHIR workflow perspective - see Workflow, specifically Request.

The RequestGroup resource is used to represent a group of optional activities that may be performed for a specific patient or context. This resource is often, but not always, the result of applying a specific PlanDefinition to a particular patient. Other than differences that tie the RequestGroup to a particular subject and setting, the actionDefinition element of PlanDefinition is identical to the action element of the RequestGroup, allowing the same features and functionality to be used in both places to describe optionality of and relationships between activities in a workflow.

RequestGroups can contain hierarchical groups of actions, where each specific action references the action to be performed (in terms of a Request resource), and each group describes additional behavior, relationships, and applicable conditions between the actions in the overall group.

This resource is referenced by CarePlan and GuidanceResponse

  • rqg-1: On RequestGroup.action: Must have resource or action but not both (expression on RequestGroup.action: resource.exists() != action.exists())

The RequestGroup resource is used when there are temporal, co-occurrence or other dependencies between one or more steps of an overall workflow. For example, "do procedure A or procedure B, but not both" or "do procedure A after procedure B" or "Act on this ProcedureRequest, then use the value of that observation in the calculation of the dose of this subsequent MedicationRequest". RequestGroups that define actions (i.e. that are more than just narrative representations) will always reference other Request resources with an intent of "option".

Each "option" request can only be interpreted in the context of a RequestGroup that references it. This is because the RequestGroup defines the context in which the option request may/should/must occur, including any triggers, timing constraints, choices, sequencing requirements, etc. Typically such "option" requests will be contained resources due to this dependency. However, in some cases "option" requests may be stand-alone if they are immutable or tightly tied to a ActivityDefinition such that the option resources can safely be referenced without a risk of their content/intent changing

Elements in the "option" requests may include extensions for timing or other elements that allow calculation based on information found in the RequestGroup or other referenced "option" resources, as well as to expose elements within the "option" resource for referencing in other "option" resources. These extensions are:

  • TODO

The RequestGroup and all of its referenced "option" Requests are treated as a single integrated Request whose status is the status of the RequestGroup. If there is a need to manage statuses of the different parts, separately, refer to the guidance here.
