Resource Profile: Genomic Base ( Abstract )

Official URL: http://hl7.org/fhir/uv/genomics-reporting/StructureDefinition/genomic-base Version: 3.0.1-SNAPSHOT
Active as of 2024-05-15 Computable Name: GenomicBase

Base profile that defines characteristics shared by all genetic observations.

Scope and Usage

This profile is the base profile for all other profiles in this guide, defining a set of constraints that are applicable across all observations.

Common Elements

  • secondary-finding (extension) can flag an observation as a secondary finding, a finding that is unrelated to the primary purpose for the test
  • partOf is limited to references which are applicable to genomic observations
  • category slices required two categories for all genomic observations in order to facilitate more efficient queries
  • note is a CodedAnnotation that allow all comments to also contain coded type
  • derivedFrom is limited to references which are applicable to genomic observations
  • conclusion-string (component) represents a summary conclusion to provide interpretation or impression guidance

Usage:
