Scope of coverage

Covers persons involved in healthcare, but that are not the target of healthcare, nor have a formal responsibility in the care process.

RIM scope


Resource appropriateness

Systems need to track persons that are related to the patient or support the process without having a formal role or responsibility. Some systems may do so by tracking these persons by id, though it is not expected all systems will need this capability.

Expected implementations

A subset of health information systems that keep track of identified related persons.

Content sources

None beyond the standard list

Example Scenarios

  • A patient's wife or husband
  • A contact for a patient or organization
  • A neighbour bringing a patient to the hospital

Resource Relationships



Considered for the sept 2013 DSTU ballot, but might be delayed until after that.
