Hopefully this is pretty simple query. I’m new to this and trying to get my head around converting our practice address book/contact list to FHIR and wondering if I’m on the right track.
We’ve got two types of entries in our address book: individuals and companies. Individual entries for a person, which contain basic things like a name, address, speciality, HPI-I number (optional), a physical and postal address, as well as contact info. A person can be a doctor, an IT person, anyone really. Then there’s also company/organisation entries, which contain a name, HPI-O number (optional), a physical and postal address. Again, like a person, there is no stipulation that this company/organisation is medically related, it could be an insurer or IT Company.
Individual entries and company/organisation are considered sperate entities, meaning there’s no current way to link an individual to the organisation entry they work for at this stage.
I assume we’d simply map the company/organisation entries to the Organization resource? The individual I’m not so sure about. Would they map to the Person resource?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
