FHIR Resource Development Project Insight ID
Scope of coverage
A natural person has identity outside of a healthcare setting. The Person resource is used to capture this information and to relate the person as an individual to other resources that do have a health-related context.
This Person Resource is not covered by the RIM directly.
- Cross-Domain Patient Directory
- In a data sharing network, finding the location of patient records across different systems is a necessary pre-requisite for accessing external patient data. Using the link element, systems associate patient resources from different organizations. The assuranceLevel associated with the link provides a way for a system to qualify its confidence in the asserted link. For example, a relationship from the person to a patient using a probabilistic matching algorithm may be represented using a link with an assurance level of level1, while a relationship established using a government-issued photo ID may be created with an assurance level of level3.
- Cross Domain Provider Directory
- Similarly, providers working in multiple healthcare service settings may be linked across different organizations using the link element. The various practitioner resources can be related using a common person resource with a link for each of the practitioner resources located in other organizations.
The Person resource provides direct links to Patient, Practitioner, RelatedPerson, and Person (itself)
This resource has been worked on by the workgroup and reviewed in the for comment ballot just reconciled.
