Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the StructureMap resource.

StructureMap
Element IdStructureMap
Definition

A Map of relationships between 2 structures that can be used to transform data.

Cardinality0..*
TypeDomainResource
Alternate NamesTemplate; Profile
Invariants
Defined on this element
smp-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}')
StructureMap.url
Element IdStructureMap.url
Definition

An absolute URI that is used to identify this structure map 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 structure map is (or will be) published. This URL can be the target of a canonical reference. It SHALL remain the same when the structure map is stored on different servers.

Cardinality1..1
Typeuri
Requirements

Allows the structure map to be referenced by a single globally unique identifier.

Alternate Namesurl; authoritative-url; destination; identity
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.

StructureMap.identifier
Element IdStructureMap.identifier
Definition

A formal identifier that is used to identify this structure map 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 structure map outside of FHIR, where it is not possible to use the logical URI.

StructureMap.version
Element IdStructureMap.version
Definition

The identifier that is used to identify this version of the structure map when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or instance. This is an arbitrary value managed by the structure map 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 structure map 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 structure map with the format [url]|[version].

StructureMap.name
Element IdStructureMap.name
Definition

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

Cardinality1..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.

Invariants

inv-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}')
StructureMap.title
Element IdStructureMap.title
Definition

A short, descriptive, user-friendly title for the structure map.

Cardinality0..1
Typestring
Summarytrue
Comments

This name does not need to be machine-processing friendly and may contain punctuation, white-space, etc.

StructureMap.status
Element IdStructureMap.status
Definition

The status of this structure map. Enables tracking the life-cycle of the content.

Cardinality1..1
Terminology BindingPublicationStatus (Required)
Typecode
Is Modifiertrue (Reason: This is labeled as "Is Modifier" because applications should not use a retired {{title}} without due consideration)
Summarytrue
Comments

Allows filtering of structure maps that are appropriate for use versus not.

StructureMap.experimental
Element IdStructureMap.experimental
Definition

A Boolean value to indicate that this structure map is authored for testing purposes (or education/evaluation/marketing) and is not intended to be used for genuine usage.

Cardinality0..1
Typeboolean
Requirements

Enables experimental content to be developed following the same lifecycle that would be used for a production-level structure map.

Summarytrue
Comments

Allows filtering of structure maps that are appropriate for use versus not.

StructureMap.date
Element IdStructureMap.date
Definition

The date (and optionally time) when the structure map was published. The date must change when the business version changes and it must change if the status code changes. In addition, it should change when the substantive content of the structure map changes.

Cardinality0..1
TypedateTime
Alternate NamesRevision Date
Summarytrue
Comments

Note that this is not the same as the resource last-modified-date, since the resource may be a secondary representation of the structure map. Additional specific dates may be added as extensions or be found by consulting Provenances associated with past versions of the resource.

StructureMap.publisher
Element IdStructureMap.publisher
Definition

The name of the organization or individual that published the structure map.

Cardinality0..1
Typestring
Requirements

Helps establish the "authority/credibility" of the structure map. May also allow for contact.

Summarytrue
Comments

Usually an organization but may be an individual. The publisher (or steward) of the structure map is the organization or individual primarily responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the structure map. This is not necessarily the same individual or organization that developed and initially authored the content. The publisher is the primary point of contact for questions or issues with the structure map. This item SHOULD be populated unless the information is available from context.

StructureMap.contact
Element IdStructureMap.contact
Definition

Summarytrue
Comments

May be a web site, an email address, a telephone number, etc.

StructureMap.description
Element IdStructureMap.description
Definition

A free text natural language description of the structure map from a consumer's perspective.

Cardinality0..1
Typemarkdown
Comments

This description can be used to capture details such as why the structure map was built, comments about misuse, instructions for clinical use and interpretation, literature references, examples from the paper world, etc. It is not a rendering of the structure map as conveyed in the 'text' field of the resource itself. This item SHOULD be populated unless the information is available from context (e.g. the language of the structure map is presumed to be the predominant language in the place the structure map was created).

StructureMap.useContext
Element IdStructureMap.useContext
Definition

The content was developed with a focus and intent of supporting the contexts that are listed. These contexts may be general categories (gender, age, ...) or may be references to specific programs (insurance plans, studies, ...) and may be used to assist with indexing and searching for appropriate structure map instances.

Cardinality0..*
TypeUsageContext
Requirements

Assist in searching for appropriate content.

Summarytrue
Comments

When multiple useContexts are specified, there is no expectation that all or any of the contexts apply.

StructureMap.jurisdiction
Element IdStructureMap.jurisdiction
Definition

A legal or geographic region in which the structure map is intended to be used.

Cardinality0..*
Terminology BindingJurisdiction (Extensible)

Cardinality0..1
Typemarkdown
Comments

This element does not describe the usage of the structure map. Instead, it provides traceability of ''why'' the resource is either needed or ''why'' it is defined as it is. This may be used to point to source materials or specifications that drove the structure of this structure map.

StructureMap.copyright
Element IdStructureMap.copyright
Definition

A copyright statement relating to the structure map and/or its contents. Copyright statements are generally legal restrictions on the use and publishing of the structure map.
