HL7 to FHIR question: PV1-10 Service. What FHIR object to use?


#1

What FHIR object is the best to implement the PV1-10 value under? FHIR is not even sure about it?
these types of values from HL7 to describe the type of service the patient will receive or the setting they will be in.

GER = GERIATRIC PSYCH
HSP = HOSPICE
LTA = LONG TERM ACUTE
LTASN = LTAC SITE NUETRAL
NRU = NEUROLOGICAL REHAB
OBS = OBSERVATION
PSY = PSYCHIATRIC
SNU = SKILLED NURSING UNIT

Encounter.serviceProvider
Definition
An organization that is in charge of maintaining the information of this Encounter (e.g. who maintains the report or the master service catalog item, etc.). This MAY be the same as the organization on the Patient record, however it could be different. This MAY not be not the Service Delivery Location’s Organization.

Control 0…1
Type Reference(Organization)

serviceProvider PV1-10 / PL.6 & PL.1 (note: HL7 v2 definition is “the treatment or type of surgery that the patient is scheduled to receive”; seems slightly out of alignment with the concept name ‘hospital service’. Would not trust that implementations apply this semantic by default)

The best match is probably to the HealthcareService.type element. But it’s not going to be an exact 1:1 translation.
