Map MFN_M10 to FHIR Resource


#1

Hello. I need to map MFN_M10 messages to FHIR resources and i don’t know how or on what kind of resourse is the correct one to put my lab services. Any help would be great

We’re currently working on an ObservationDefinition resource, but it’s still in draft state. Feedback on it would be welcome.

@lloyd I can see another resource type named: CatalogEntry (with maturity level 0 as well). One of the valid scopes is: A laboratory compendium and has a reference to ObservationDefinition. That catalog entry even has an orderable property like the OM1 MFN’s segment. the idea is to use a combination of both resources types?

The CatalogEntry, if it gets approved, would likely be a wrapper for ObservationDefinition. This whole area is still in the early stages, so at this point, you should expect radical change. If you need to implement now, look at what’s there, pick what’s closest to what you need and be prepared to extend. Feedback is welcome.
