  • Review John's addition to the FHIR wiki on the page that tells editors how to create a Resource. a discussion on Provenance and W5. and pass links to group including Gary
  • John update on noted descriptions in AuditEvent need yet to be fixed up regarding participant->agent, and object->entity.

Robs paragraph

The Provenance resource depends upon having References to all of the resources, entities, and agents involved in the activity. These References need not be resolvable. The references must provide a unique and ambiguous identification. If a resource, entity, or agent can have different versions that must be identified, then the Reference must have versioning information included.

Versioning and unique identification are not mandated for all systems that provide Resources, entities, and agents. But, inclusion of Provenance requirements may introduction requirements for versioning and unique identification on those systems.
