Where to map patient disposition?

I have a client requirement for us to track what they call the patient’s disposition. In their terminology they refer to disposition as a status of Green, Yellow, or Red. Green means the patient will be discharged in the next 24 hours, Yellow that they may be discharged in the next 24 hours, Red meaning no chance.

I have not found a natural place to put this in the FHIR ontology. Disposition typically means their admit status. Their definition is a bit different. Does anyone have advice?


That sounds like an extension to put on Encounter. (It’s directly tied to the encounter and it’s not something I’d expect most systems to support.)
