Scope of coverage

Note: This resource will be undergoing major revisions to align with the FHIR workflow 'event pattern'.

The DeviceUseStatement resource:

  • records ??? the use of a healthcare-related device by a patient. The record is the result of a report of use by the patient or another provider. ???
    • is this within the 80% or are observations used?.
  • Is it also the 'event' resource in response to the DeviceUseRequest request i.e a record of the Delivery?
    • Do we need another resource for this??
  • This resource does not address the logistics of supply movement and is not associated with a patient. The SupplyDelivery resource would be used for 'generic' movement of devices.

Does there need to be separate Dispense and Statement resources?
