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.
