PractitionerRole as Schedule.actor and Appointment.participant.actor


#1

Hi,
We have a use case where when an appointment is requested with a physician his role should be specified. As a patient I need to specify if I request an appointment with this physician in his private office or in the hospital department where he works 2 days per week
Is there a reason why PractitionerRole cannot be referenced by Appointment.participant.actor?
All referenced resources in Schedule.actor should not also be referenced in Appointment.participant.actor?
Thanks

Not that I can think of. I’ve submitted https://gforge.hl7.org/gf/project/fhir/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=19376 on your behalf. (I normally would have encouraged you to submit it yourself, but we’re getting down to the wire on FHIR R4 changes and I think this one needs to be considered for inclusion in that release.
