Artifact List

This page provides a list of the FHIR artifacts defined as part of this implementation guide.

Structures: Resource Profiles

These define constraints on FHIR resources that need to be complied with by conformant implementations

MDS Device profile StructureDefinition for Device resources that represent a Medical Device System (MDS). This is the top-level resource in the hierarchical model of a Point-of-Care device.
VMD Device profile StructureDefinition for Device resources that represent Virtual Medical Devices (VMD). These are medical-related subsystems in the hierarchical model of a Point-of-Care device.
Channel Device profile StructureDefinition for Device resources that represent Channels, which are used for grouping metrics together.
Numeric DeviceMetric profile StructureDefinition for DeviceMetric resources that represent numerical measurements, calculations, or settings characteristics and capabilities.
Enumeration DeviceMetric profile StructureDefinition for DeviceMetric resources that represent coded or text status, annotations, or settings characteristics and capabilities.
Numeric Observation profile StructureDefinition for Observation resources that represent numerical measurements, calculations, or settings.
Compound Numeric Observation profile StructureDefinition for Observation resources that represent numerical measurements, calculations, or settings with multiple components.
Enumeration Observation profile StructureDefinition for Observation resources that represent coded or text status, annotations, or settings.

Structures: Extension Definitions

These define constraints on FHIR data types that need to be complied with by conformant implementations

Device Instance extension StructureDefinition that adds an instance number to Device.
