Scope of coverage
A transmission requesting action on a bundle of one or more resources or a response to such a request.
In FHIR messaging, a "request message" is sent from a source application to a destination application when an event happens. Events mostly correspond to things that happen in the real world. The request message consists of a bundle of resources, with the first resource in the bundle being this Message resource. The Message resource has a code - the message event - that identifies the nature of the request message and carries additional request metadata. The other resources in the bundle depend on the type of the request.
Detailed message resource mappings can be found at: http://www.hl7.org/implement/standards/fhir/message-mappings.htm
