CA Baseline Location Profile

This Location profile sets minimum expectations for the Location resource to record, search and fetch details and position information for a physical place where services are provided.

This profile defines localization concepts for use in a Canadian context.

Mandatory Data Elements

All elements or attributes defined in FHIR have cardinality as part of their definition - a minimum number of required appearances and a maximum number.

Most elements in FHIR specification have a minimum cardinality of 0, which means that they may be missing from a resource when it is exchanged between systems.

In this Canadian Baseline Location Profile all elements are optional, i.e., there is no element with a minimum cardinality of 1. However, some optional elements (e.g., identifier) have required components that MUST be present if that optional element is provided.

Must Support Data Elements

Some elements are labeled as MustSupport meaning that implementations that produce or consume resources SHALL provide “support” for the element in some meaningful way (see Must Support definition).

Following elements are marked as Must Support in the Canadian Location profile to aid record matching in databases with many pediatric records.

Must Support elements:

  • an identifier
  • a location name
  • contact detail (e.g. a telephone number or an email address)

Notes:

Identifiers

Currently, there is no consensus or requirement for pan-Canadian method to identify a location using a business identifier. Location.identifier will remain unsliced until a requirement or rationale is put forth that supports the need to have unique constraints determined by the business identifier.

Service Language

The Location MAY have a Service Language extension. This extension is to identify languages that that services are provided in this particular location.

Address

The Location profile is provided for use in a Canadian context where some constraint on content is desirable to guarantee the quality of the Canadian address whilst still supporting other type of address (e.g., other countries or UNstructured addresses).

Canadian postal code

If an address in the Location resource instance represents Canadian address, it SHOULD follow Canadian postal code format.

The Canadian Postal Code SHOULD be a six-character uniformly structured uppercase alphanumeric code in the form of “ANA NAN”, where “A” represents an alphabetic character and “N” represents a numeric character, with one space between the first three and the last three characters.

A hyphen SHOULD NOT be used (example of UNacceptable format: T0L-1K0).
