8.14 Resource Device - Content

Orders and Observations Work GroupMaturity Level: 2 Trial UseSecurity Category: Business Compartments: Patient

A type of a manufactured item that is used in the provision of healthcare without being substantially changed through that activity. The device may be a medical or non-medical device.

This is a base resource that tracks individual instances of a device and their location. It is referenced by other resources for recording which device performed an action such as a procedure or an observation, which device was implanted in or explanted from a patient, dispensing a device to a patient for their use, managing inventory, or when requesting a specific device for a patient’s use. The resource may be used to document the Unique Device Identifier (UDI) and information about a device where appropriate or necessary. Additional information about UDI is provided in the Unique Device Identifier (UDI) section.

Medical devices include durable (reusable) medical equipment, implantable devices, as well as disposable equipment used for diagnostic, treatment, and research for healthcare and public health. Non-medical devices may include items such as a machine, cellphone, computer, application, etc.

Devices can also be subdivded as follows:

Implantable device

Patient-use device

These are the device related resources

  • Device (this resource)
  • DeviceDefinition - Describes a "kind" of device - not a physical instance. A kind of device is frequently defined and documented by the manufacturer, reseller, or regulatory. Documentation would include general information any information that applies to any instance of a device, and may be published through a catalog. For example, the characteristics of a test analyzer, x-ray machine, or wheelchair.
  • DeviceMetric - Describes a measurement, calculation or setting capability of a device. A Device may include multiple device metrics, each yielding a different observation.

In FHIR, the Device represents either the device in total, or a component of a larger device when there is a need for individual tracking of a component. A Device as a component then points to the parent device it is part of. The Device captures the actual data about the instance of the device that either provides identifying characteristics of the Device (including applicable UDI – unique device identification) and data that can vary by device, e.g., specific settings at a particular point in time. The DeviceDefinition represents the data that is applicable to all devices that reference that DeviceDefinition.

The DeviceMetric model the dynamic aspects of the Device, including operation status of those aspects and is consequently much more volatile.

Devices differ from medications because they are not "used up" - they remain active in or for a patient for a longer duration. They also may be re-used, particularly non-implanted devices and those used for diagnostics and procedures. Frequently, when a device is packaged with a medication, the ordering, dispense, and administration processes typically focus on the medication aspects and reference the device, rather than that the Device is the focus of the ordering, dispense, and administration process. In the case of an infusion pump, while some actions are focused on the device (e.g., ordering to a room or maintaining the pump), the focus is as well on the medication while the device is used for administration. However, that separation is not always as clear and may be impacted by specific implementations. Regardless, the Medication resource should not be used to represent (implanted) devices, rather reference the relationship where an actual device needs to be tracked in addition to the medication.

Nearly all devices are assigned a string of characters to represent one or more identifiers or codes, which are usually printed or affixed to the device using either barcodes or RFIDs. The identifier or code can come from the manufacturer (for example, a 'serial number', 'reference number', or 'catalog number'), various institution and registries. Any of these identifiers or codes assigned to the device can and should be recorded in the device resource. However, there can there can be confusion where to represent them in the resource because codes and identifiers are represented in FHIR as semantically distinct elements and because organizations may conflate the term 'code' for an identifier or 'identifier' for a code in their names.

The identifier element is only intended for use when it's an actual identifier for a specific instance of a device. That would mean that each device would have a separate serial number and would be represented using this element - devices without serial numbers (for example, a box of syringes) would not. Concepts such as a reference number or catalog number or GTIN describe a code which represents a kind of device and are conveyed using the type element. Some sources of standard codes for devices and translations within type are listed below:

For systems that do have a system URI for device types (indicating the model number or part number), they can and should appear as codings in Device.type.

The International Medical Device Regulators Forum IMDRF UDI Working Group published UDI System for Medical Devices (Version 2.0) , the base specification for Unique Device Identifiers (UDI). The United States Food and Drug Administration has produced an implementation guide for Unique Device Identifiers (UDI) which implements the IMDRF specification and other jurisdictions may produce similar IMDRF implementation guides as well. The full UDI string that represents the barcode as printed on the packaging of the device or Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) representation is called the "UDI carrier". The UDI has 2 components*:

  • Device identifier (DI)**, which is the actual identification component
  • Production identifier(s)(PI) which provide the means to track a device through its manufacture, distribution and use.

*non-UDI elements may also appear within the UDI carrier. **a "GTIN" (sometimes also called an EAN number) is a code developed by GS1 for the kind of device not an identifier for the device. A GTIN may appear on its own or it may appear in a UDI string as the DI component.

The DI of the UDI may be stored in a jurisdictional repository and used as the primary key to access other device information. For example, in the United States, the DI of the UDI is submitted in a device record to the Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID) . The UDI may identify an instance of a device uniquely (when the PI includes a serial number), or it may just identify the type of the device. The UDI is parsed into its constituent parts (DI, PI and other elements) by parsing rules developed by each Issuing Agency standard. Where the device has an assigned UDI, the other details carried in the resource (e.g., lot, expiration date, etc.) SHALL be consistent with the information encoded in the UDI string or registered in the local repository.

Best practice guidelines for transmitting UDI data using the Device resource dictate transmitting both the UDI Carrier and all components found within the UDI as described in Device UDI Mapping. Several examples are provided for further guidance.
