Owning committee name
Owned by Patient Care, though temporarily being managed by the FHIR Core Team
Contributing or Reviewing Work Groups
All work groups may have cause to use this resource at some time, but no one group has a special requirement.
FHIR Resource Development Project Insight ID
Scope of coverage
A list represents a currated collection of resources that is defined by enumeration and may be ordered. The contents of a list may change over time and there may be a record kept of items that it did contain but have now been deleted.
A list is similar to a group but is not an exact specialisation of a group. A List always has a specific context or semantic that identifies the purpose of the collected entities. The context of groups is determinable only by where they are referenced.
Groups may have a business identifier and as such constitute an entity in their own right outside FHIR. In contrast lists which may be of a specific type, but are not identifiable as list instances other than by means of their FHIR URL.
Groups may be defined by criteria for inclusion or by enumeration whereas lists which can only be enumerated.
Groups cannot be ordered, and have no concept of former members who have now been deleted.
Act[normalAct() and subsumes(ActClass#_ActClassRecordOrganizer, classCode) and moodCode=EVN]
Dealing with collections of objects is a universal concept both in healthcare and in information modelling. Needed for allergy, medication, problem and other lists
Needed for CCDA
- Patient Care DMIM
- Keeping a running list of patients in a ward
- Providing a snapshot of the items dispensed to a patient in the last 3 months
- Listing a patient's allergies and intolerances
- Listing changes in a patient's problems since they were last assessed
- any resource that is an event or entity of some form may be summarised and managed by means of a list.
Ready for ballot in September 2013
Hugh Glover 10:55, 18 June 2013 (UTC): Not sure the distinction between group and list is sufficient to justify them being separate resources.
- LM: I'm quite certain they're distinct resources, but we definitely need to be clearer about what the boundaries are.
