  • There can be multiple instance of stub (DefinitionStub and SiteStub) and the stub can have a repeating ID. It appears we will have to rely on the Path to identify if the ID can repeat.
  • Codes are of type Concept Descriptor (code: CD) or Coded With Equivalents (code: CE), both have originalText. We can use this attribute "originalText" to capture the actual test name and method for TestDefinition element, and the actual storage conditions for StroageCondition element that the style sheet would use. For information on these data types got to, click on the "May 2011 V3 Ballot Site", January 2011 V3 Ballot Site or any of the "Ballot Site" under ballot web Site; in the upper left corner click "Link to HL7 Version 3.0 MONTH YEAR Ballot Site"; Click "Foundation"; click "Data Types: Abstract"; click "Basic Types"; then click on either "Concept Descriptor (CD) specializes ANY" or "Coded With Equivalents (CE) specializes CD".

  • Any data element you can indicate is not present, null value applies to an attribute in an element, nill would be for the association (element) For eStability we would never have an element not present. Do not need to pay attention to schema where nillable=true. Ignore nillable, pay attention to nullable.
