Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the RiskEvidenceSynthesis resource.

RiskEvidenceSynthesis
Element IdRiskEvidenceSynthesis
Definition

The RiskEvidenceSynthesis resource describes the likelihood of an outcome in a population plus exposure state where the risk estimate is derived from a combination of research studies.

Cardinality0..*
TypeDomainResource
Invariants
Defined on this element
rvs-0Warning Name should be usable as an identifier for the module by machine processing applications such as code generationname.matches('[A-Z]([A-Za-z0-9_]){0,254}')
RiskEvidenceSynthesis.url
Element IdRiskEvidenceSynthesis.url
Definition

An absolute URI that is used to identify this risk evidence synthesis when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or an instance; also called its canonical identifier. This SHOULD be globally unique and SHOULD be a literal address at which at which an authoritative instance of this risk evidence synthesis is (or will be) published. This URL can be the target of a canonical reference. It SHALL remain the same when the risk evidence synthesis is stored on different servers.

Cardinality0..1
Typeuri
Requirements

Allows the risk evidence synthesis to be referenced by a single globally unique identifier.

Summarytrue
Comments

Can be a urn:uuid: or a urn:oid: but real http: addresses are preferred. Multiple instances may share the same URL if they have a distinct version.

The determination of when to create a new version of a resource (same url, new version) vs. defining a new artifact is up to the author. Considerations for making this decision are found in Technical and Business Versions.

In some cases, the resource can no longer be found at the stated url, but the url itself cannot change. Implementations can use the meta.source element to indicate where the current master source of the resource can be found.

RiskEvidenceSynthesis.identifier
Element IdRiskEvidenceSynthesis.identifier
Definition

A formal identifier that is used to identify this risk evidence synthesis when it is represented in other formats, or referenced in a specification, model, design or an instance.

NoteThis is a business identifier, not a resource identifier (see discussion)
Cardinality0..*
TypeIdentifier
Requirements

Allows externally provided and/or usable business identifiers to be easily associated with the module.

Summarytrue
Comments

Typically, this is used for identifiers that can go in an HL7 V3 II (instance identifier) data type, and can then identify this risk evidence synthesis outside of FHIR, where it is not possible to use the logical URI.

RiskEvidenceSynthesis.version
Element IdRiskEvidenceSynthesis.version
Definition

The identifier that is used to identify this version of the risk evidence synthesis when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or instance. This is an arbitrary value managed by the risk evidence synthesis 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.

NoteThis is a business versionId, not a resource version id (see discussion)
Cardinality0..1
Typestring
Summarytrue
Comments

There may be different risk evidence synthesis instances that have the same identifier but different versions. The version can be appended to the url in a reference to allow a reference to a particular business version of the risk evidence synthesis with the format [url]|[version].

RiskEvidenceSynthesis.name
Element IdRiskEvidenceSynthesis.name
Definition

A natural language name identifying the risk evidence synthesis. This name should be usable as an identifier for the module by machine processing applications such as code generation.

Cardinality0..1
Typestring
Requirements

Support human navigation and code generation.

Summarytrue
Comments

The name is not expected to be globally unique. The name should be a simple alphanumeric type name to ensure that it is machine-processing friendly.
