14.10 Resource EventDefinition - Content

Clinical Decision Support icon Work GroupMaturity Level: 0 Trial UseSecurity Category: Anonymous Compartments: No defined compartments

The EventDefinition resource provides a reusable description of when a particular event can occur.

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

The EventDefinition provides a reusable description of an event. The resource supports describing different kinds of events, including named events, periodic events, and data-based events. For each of these, the resource also supports a formal description of the event. For example, a 'monitor-emergency-admissions' event can be a named event, but also provide a formal description of the event as monitoring for encounters that occur in emergency department locations.

The EventDefinition resource is intended to be used to provide a reusable description of events for use by other resources that require event definition, such as Subscription. EventDefinition is a definition of an event that could occur, whereas Subscription is asking for notification of events when they occur.

PathValueSetTypeDocumentation
EventDefinition.versionAlgorithm[x] VersionAlgorithm Extensible

Indicates the mechanism used to compare versions to determine which is more current.

EventDefinition.status PublicationStatus Required

The lifecycle status of an artifact.

EventDefinition.subject[x] ParticipantResourceTypes Extensible

All Resource Types that represent participant resources

EventDefinition.jurisdiction JurisdictionValueSet Extensible

This value set defines a base set of codes for country, country subdivision and region for indicating where a resource is intended to be used.

Note: The codes for countries and country subdivisions are taken from ISO 3166 icon while the codes for "supra-national" regions are from UN Standard country or area codes for statistical use (M49) icon.

EventDefinition.topic DefinitionTopic Example

High-level categorization of the definition, used for searching, sorting, and filtering.
