Scope of coverage

Resources covers the demographics and qualification information for an individual who is directly or indirectly involved in the provisioning of healthcare. It covers all individuals who are professionally engaged in the healthcare process, commonly (but not necessarily) on behalf of an organization. Their activity represents formal responsibility for a healthcare process, or parts thereof. This Resource is used for attribution of activities and responsibilities to these individuals. Practitioner include:

  • physicians, dentists, pharmacists
  • physician assistants, nurses, scribes
  • midwives, dietitians, therapists, optometrists, paramedics
  • medical technicians, laboratory scientists, prosthetic technicians, radiographers
  • social workers, professional home carers, official volunteers
  • receptionists handling patient registration

The Resources must not be used for persons involved for non-professional reasons like individuals taking care for friends, relatives or neighbors.

Although a Practitioner Resource represents individuals, they may practice their profession on behalf on an organization. Commonly, a Practitioner performs different roles within the same or even different organizations. Depending on jurisdiction and custom, it may be necessary to maintain a specific Practitioner Resource for each such role, possibly with different relevant qualifications. The role is also often limited to a specific period, after which authorization for this role ends. Note that the represented organization need not necessarily be the (direct) employer of a Practitioner.
