FHIR Resource Development Project Insight ID


Scope of coverage

The Adverse Reaction resource is intended to convey reactions that have occurred to a patient due to some substance. Although these reactions are normally associated with an Allergy or Intolerance, they can be reported on their own when no assumption of further reactions is being made, or when a specific adverse reaction is being described.

RIM scope

Observation in Event mood with an Observation.code = ADVERSE_REACTION.

Resource appropriateness

An adverse reaction is a well-known healthcare concept that is regularly tracked and queried for.

Expected implementations

As part of the Allergy/Intolerance resource, the Adverse Reaction resource can be found in CCDA as well as in almost any system that will track allergies.

Content sources

Existing draft v3 models, new Allergy/Intolerance DAM Information Model, CDA requirements for reactions.

Resource Relationships

The common relationship for this resource will be to the Allergy/Intolerance resource. But any resource that needs to express adverse reactions can be a potential linker to this resource.
