Data Absent Reason on Patient.name conflicts with Invariant us-core-8

    XMLWordPrintableJSON

    Details

    • Type: Change Request
    • Status: Applied (View Workflow)
    • Priority: Medium
    • Resolution: Persuasive with Modification

      Description

      The provided example fails validation because of the us-core-8 invariant.

      us-core-8

      Patient.name.given or Patient.name.family or both SHALL be present [family.exists() or given.exists()]

       

      Data Absent Reason Example:

      {
       "resourceType" : "Patient",
       ...
       "name":[
       "extension" : [
       "url" : "http://hl7.org/fhir/StructureDefinition/data-absent-reason",
       "valueCode" : "unknown"
       }]
       ]
       "telecom" :
       ...
       }

      Proposed Resolution:

      Either the invariant needs to change, or the example needs to reflect the requirements of the invariant (e.g. DAR extension on Patient.name.given or Patient.name.family).
