An example mapping of Health Plan data for Members to the US Core 3.1.1 Encounter or US Core 6.1.0 Encounter resource is shown below:

When populating the encounter resource period - if claim has period, populate period; if only a date, populate the end date in a period element.

Add warning text to alert the user that Claims consider the date of service to be the date when the service is completed therefore one generally cannot infer the start date of a diagnosis or the encounter to be the same as the service date of a line item.

The essential fields (Must Support or Cardinality greater than 0..*) to be provided in the US Core 3.1.1 Encounter or US Core 6.1.0 Encounter resource are:

R4 Element Name Cardinality Type
