Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the Evidence resource.

Evidence
Element IdEvidence
Definition

The Evidence Resource provides a machine-interpretable expression of an evidence concept including the evidence variables (e.g., population, exposures/interventions, comparators, outcomes, measured variables, confounding variables), the statistics, and the certainty of this evidence.

Short DisplaySingle evidence bit
Cardinality0..*

Invariants

cnl-0Warning Name should be usable as an identifier for the module by machine processing applications such as code generationname.exists() implies name.matches('[A-Z]([A-Za-z0-9_]){1,254}')
Evidence.url
Element IdEvidence.url
Definition

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

Short DisplayCanonical identifier for this evidence, represented as a globally unique URI
Cardinality0..1
Typeuri
Requirements

Allows the evidence 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.

Invariants
Defined on this element
cnl-1Warning URL should not contain | or # - these characters make processing canonical references problematicurl.matches('([^|#])*')
Evidence.identifier
Element IdEvidence.identifier
Definition

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

Short DisplayAdditional identifier for the summary
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 summary outside of FHIR, where it is not possible to use the logical URI.

Evidence.version
Element IdEvidence.version
Definition

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

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

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.

Summarytrue
Comments

If set as a string, this is a FHIRPath expression that has two additional context variables passed in - %version1 and %version2 and will return a negative number if version1 is newer, a positive number if version2 is newer, and a 0 if the version ordering can't successfully be determined.

Evidence.name
Element IdEvidence.name
Definition

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

Short DisplayName for this summary (machine friendly)
Cardinality0..1
Typestring
Summaryfalse
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.
