Structure of models

Describe the overall structure of DataGroups and Compositions.

DataGroups are the ‘atomic’ units from which compositions are created. They use FHIR datatypes and the intention is that a DG will have an assiciated profile for validation purposes. Internally, DG’s have a hierarchy where one DG can inherit elements from a parent, and then constrain them or add new elements. In this guide, the hierarchy is not (currently) shown - rather each DH is expanded to give a complete view of the model.

A Composition is a selection of DGs for some purpose. The tooling can generate a Questionnaire from the composition. This could be:

  • Generation of a HISO standard (as we’ve been doing with the previous work)
  • The contents of a Questionnaire that can be used for data collection purposes
