Patient Ethnicity / Race Extension


#1

The Patient Resource seems to be lacking defined Extensions for Ethnicity and Race. Are there specifications for these extensions elsewhere?


#2

Concepts of race and ethnicity vary greatly between jurisdictions.

If you are after US stuff, see the US Core http://hl7.org/fhir/us/core/history.html
