Scope of Composite Order
The Composite Order topic includes the ability to order multiple basic healthcare services in one message; the disciplines included are request for lab services, diagnostic imaging services, and pharmacy services. This topic covers all interactions related to requesting single or combinations of healthcare services.
Note that the Composite Order project includes development of the SAIF behavioral model components. BF Alpha Project

Characteristics of a Composite Order
The current design thinking for Composite Order is to move from an entirely constraint-based approach to a building-blocks approach. Meaning we're moving from a big DMIM, from which all RMIMs are properly derived to an approach where the DMIM is a representation of the RIM.
- with order constraints? (some like this approach)
- without order constraints? (others like this approach)
What does it mean to use the RIM or a barely constrained version of the RIM as the composite order as a DMIM?
OO asserts that Composite Order is a template. In this case, we define template as a set of definitions which are constraints on the parent model for the core data.
