When the logical id of the patient is not used, servers MAY choose to support patient selection based on provided identifier. Unless the identifier system is unknown, requestors SHOULD include both the system and value (e.g. 'identifier=|CNNJ9186') when using this parameter.


A specific profile for the patient summary may be specified. By default, servers MAY use the Bundle profile


Servers MAY choose to allow any graph definition to be specified, but MAY require that the client choose a graph definition from a specific list of known supported definitions. The server is not required to support a formal definition of the graph on the end point
