I have multiple Patients in my system. Some are naturally dependents of other Patients in the eyes of Health Insurance Providers. Let’s say a dad has four dependent children and they’re all patients. How would I map this relationship in FHIR?
The Patient.link field is only meant for patients who duplicate this patient? https://www.hl7.org/fhir/patient-definitions.html#Patient.link (even though the RelatedPerson docs seem to dispute that)
Coverage only has one beneficiary/dependent slot, not multiple.
Patient.contact doesn’t have a way to link two actual patients together.
