Does anyone have an example of how to include a provider state license number? Should this be shown as a Practitioner.identifier? If so, what is the system uri? OR should this be added as an extension HL7.FHIR.US.DAVINCI-PDEX-PLAN-NET\Practitioner Qualification - FHIR v4.0.1
It could appear in Practitioner.identifier or in Practitioner.qualification.identifier (if there was a need to convey more information about the license). In some cases, it might appear both places.
There will be a different URI for each licensing body in each state - one for every single ‘namespace’ of license identifiers. I’m assuming you’re talking about the U.S.? For that country, I’m not aware if any of these have been formally established yet - you might want to raise the question here: https://chat.fhir.org/#narrow/stream/179190-united-states. That’s probably the best place to have a discussion about process for establishing them, if nothing else.
In the interim, you can omit the system and just specify the type and use type.text to provide a description of both the type of license and the jurisdiction. It’s not great for computable matching, but it’s good enough for display to other humans.
Thank you for the fast reply @lloyd. Yes, I am talking about the US and I will post my question on Zulip US Stream - thank you for the suggestion.
