DataRequirement.valueFilter.comparator ValueFilterComparator Required

The type of comparator operator to use

DataRequirement.sort.direction SortDirection Required

The possible sort directions, ascending or descending.

A DataRequirement differs from a parameter in that it specifies the data to be provided in terms of the type of data, and specific filters on code-valued and/or date-valued attributes. Data requirements are not named because they are referenced by type within the evaluation context.

DataRequirements are used by knowledge modules to communicate the set of required data to a consumer in a way that is computable (as opposed to a set of named parameters which must be integrated by hand based on the meaning of the parameter as communicated through the documentation).

DataRequirements are typically used to communicate patient-dependent information such as MedicationStatements and Encounters, whereas Parameters are typically used to communicate patient-independent information such as configuration values.

For example, consider the following CQL expression:

define "Total Colectomy Procedures":
  [Procedure: "Total Colectomy Value Set"] P
    where P.performedPeriod during "Measurement Period"

The criteria is looking for procedures matching the "Total Colectomy Value Set" that were performed during the "Measurement Period". In this case, "Measurement Period" is a parameter, referenced by name, whereas the reference to Procedure uses the name of the resource type, and so constitutes a data requirement of the criteria:

<dataRequirement>
	<type value="Procedure"/>
	<codeFilter>
		<path value="code"/>
		<valueSetString value="Total Colectomy Value Set"/>
	</codeFilter>
	<dateFilter>
		<path value="performed"/>
		<valuePeriod>
			<start value="2016-01-01"/>
			<end value="2016-12-31"/>
		</valuePeriod>
	</dateFilter>
</dataRequirement>

If a resource type has multiple date attributes, then it may be necessary to include multiple date criteria. For instance, in the example above the Procedure resource is using the performedPeriod date attribute. However, the Procedure resource also provides a performedDateTime (specific date and/or time when procedure was performed) attribute. Therefore, if the date criteria for the Procedure in the example was recorded using the performedDateTime attribute, the date criteria would be incomplete. To account for this additional date attribute, the example could be expanded as follows:

define "Total Colectomy Procedures":
  [Procedure: "Total Colectomy Value Set"] P
    where exists (P.performedPeriod during "Measurement Period")
	  or exists (P.performedDateTime during "Measurement Period")

The data requirement for the expanded criteria:

<dataRequirement>
	<type value="Procedure"/>
	<codeFilter>
		<path value="code"/>
		<valueSetString value="Total Colectomy Value Set"/>
	</codeFilter>
	<dateFilter>
		<path value="performed"/>
	</dateFilter>
</dataRequirement>

DataRequirement is used in the following places: TriggerDefinition, GuidanceResponse, Library, PlanDefinition and RequestOrchestration

The RelatedArtifact type is used in a variety of contexts, and supports flexible description of relationships between artifacts. For example, the type can be used to describe both successor and predecessor relationships. This flexibility is needed to support use cases where only one side or other of the relationship is represented in FHIR. In practice, this datatype SHALL NOT be used to create bi-directional linking between FHIR resources.

The TriggerDefinition structure defines when a knowledge artifact is expected to be evaluated. The structure can represent three main kinds of triggering events, depending on the value of type:

  • Named Event
  • Scheduled Event
  • Data Event

A named event is an event identified by the implementation environment. This allows any event generated within the implementation environment to be used as a trigger, but it requires pre-coordination of the names involved with the consuming environments. HL7 V2 events are assigned the URI http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v2-0003#[code] e.g. http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v2-0003/A01, and reference any data change that would trigger the sending of the matching HL7 V2 version, if the application providing the FHIR API supports v2 events internally.

A scheduled event occurs on a fixed or periodic schedule.

And finally, a data event occurs in response to some data-related event in the integrated environment such as a record being added or updated. The data-of-interest for a data event is described using a DataRequirement. This allows for systems to automatically invoke based on data activity occurring within the system. A condition may also be specified to further refine the trigger

The ExtendedContactDetail structure defines extended contact details for a named, or unnamed individual/purpose.

These are extensively used in provider directory resources where contact information is often very rich in nature, and requires additional metadata around their usage.
This datatype permits the context of the contact informations use to be provided, and groups them together with other important metadata.

Not all properties are expected to be present in all instances, and only the ones that apply.
e.g. A website contact will only have the telecom included, but might also include a purpose and possibly a period if required. Whereas an accounts contact detail could include their name, postal address and telephone number (and possibly Organization if it was an outsourced capability)

The period provides the general start and end of the contact's applicability for usage. This is not intended to store a history of usages over time, but a convenient way to record upcoming relevant changes to the content when it is being published.
This permits a contact to be marked as becoming available from X, or is expected to no longer be available from Y. An extension may be used to mark a contact's general availability times (9am - 5pm) and also exceptions where the contact is not available (e.g. Public holidays)
