Extension expression - Detailed Descriptions

Vocabulary Work Group Maturity Level: 1InformativeUse Context: Any

Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the extension.

Extension
Element IdExtension
Definition

An expression that provides an alternative definition of the content of the value set (compose). There are two different ways to use this expression extension: If both an expression (this extension) and a compose element is present, the compose is understood to the make the same statement as the expression. If there is no compose, the expression is the only definition of the value set, and the value set can only be processed by a server that understands the expression syntax, the expression is computable.

Cardinality0..1
Comments

The expression may be a reference or the actual expression, and is expected to be in a computable format. Use the rules-text extension for a non-computable expression of the value set definition (compose).

ele-1RuleAll FHIR elements must have a @value or childrenhasValue() or (children().count() > id.count())

Extension.id
Element IdExtension.id
Definition

Unique id for the element within a resource (for internal references). This may be any string value that does not contain spaces.

SlicingThis element introduces a set of slices. The slicing rules are:
  • unordered
  • Open
  • discriminators: value:url
Extension.url
Element IdExtension.url
Definition

Source of the definition for the extension code - a logical name or a URL.

Cardinality1..1
Typeuri
Comments

The definition may point directly to a computable or human-readable definition of the extensibility codes, or it may be a logical URI as declared in some other specification. The definition SHALL be a URI for the Structure Definition defining the extension.
