0. Extension
Definition

This extension defines a possible search parameter combination by listing a set of search parameters and indicating whether they are required or optional.

  • If a search combination is specified, clients should expect that they must submit a search that meets one of the required combinations or the search will be unsuccessful.
  • If multiple search parameter combinations are specified, a client may pick between them, and supply the minimal required parameters for any of the combinations.
  • If no parameters in the set of search parameters are listed as required, then at least one of the listed optional parameters must be present. This shorthand method is the same as repeating the entire extension for each combination of optional and required search parameters.

An Extension


May be used to represent additional information that is not part of the basic definition of the element. To make the use of extensions safe and managable, there is a strict set of governance applied to the definition and use of extensions. Though any implementer can define an extension, there is a set of requirements that SHALL be met as part of the definition of the extension.

ShortExtensionAdditional content defined by implementations
Comments

There can be no stigma associated with the use of extensions by any application, project, or standard - regardless of the institution or jurisdiction that uses or defines the extensions. The use of extensions is what allows the FHIR specification to retain a core level of simplicity for everyone.
