Use case covered

This resource is an event resource from a FHIR workflow perspective - see Workflow, specifically Event.

This resource applies to various circumstances where there is a concern about an existing or proposed set of clinical activity. The issue could relate to single, proposed, or multiple actions. It does not apply to technical issues (e.g. lack of user permissions) but could relate to violation of patient consent limitations. Examples include:

  • Drug-drug interactions
  • Inappropriate therapy (wrong dose, frequency, body site)
  • Duplicate therapy

This resource represents a specific instance of a potential issue for a particular patient. It is not intended to represent general patient-independent knowledge. This resource is also not intended to be used in defining general prohibitions on actions such as "No NSAIDs", "No solid oral dose forms" or "No MRIs - metallic tattoos". These guidelines can be captured using the AllergyIntolerance, and/or Flag resources. Similarly, this resource is not to be used to capture clinical facts that may imply contraindications such as pregnancy, breast feeding, patient preferences, past procedures, etc. These would be represented using Condition, Procedure or other resources.

This API uses FHIR R4 DetectedIssue Library.
