Data Type Profile: OMRSLocationContactPoint - Detailed Descriptions

Active as of 2022-10-08

Definitions for the omrs-location-contact-point data type profile.

1. ContactPoint
Definition

Details for all kinds of technology mediated contact points for a person or organization, including telephone, email, etc.

Control0..* This element is affected by the following invariants: ele-1
2. ContactPoint.id
Definition

Unique id for the element within a resource (for internal references). This may be any string value that does not contain spaces.

Control0..1
Typestring
3. ContactPoint.extension
Definition

May be used to represent additional information that is not part of the basic definition of the element. To make the use of extensions safe and manageable, there is a strict set of governance applied to the definition and use of extensions. Though any implementer can define an extension, there is a set of requirements that SHALL be met as part of the definition of the extension.

Control0..*
TypeExtension
Alternate Namesextensionsuser content
Comments

There can be no stigma associated with the use of extensions by any application, project, or standard - regardless of the institution or jurisdiction that uses or defines the extensions. The use of extensions is what allows the FHIR specification to retain a core level of simplicity for everyone.

InvariantsDefined on this element
ele-1: All FHIR elements must have a @value or children (: hasValue() or (children().count() > id.count()))
ext-1: Must have either extensions or value[x], not both (: extension.exists() != value.exists())
SlicingThis element introduces a set of slices on ContactPoint.extension. The slices are unordered and Open, and can be differentiated using the following discriminators:
  • value @ url
4. ContactPoint.system
Definition

Telecommunications form for contact point - what communications system is required to make use of the contact.

Control1..1 This element is affected by the following invariants: cpt-2
BindingThe codes SHALL be taken from ContactPointSystem Telecommunications form for contact point
Typecode
InvariantsDefined on this element
ele-1: All FHIR elements must have a @value or children (: hasValue() or (children().count() > id.count()))
5. ContactPoint.value
Definition

The actual contact point details, in a form that is meaningful to the designated communication system (i.e. phone number or email address).

Control1..1
Typestring
Requirements

Need to support legacy numbers that are not in a tightly controlled format.

Comments

Additional text data such as phone extension numbers, or notes about use of the contact are sometimes included in the value.

InvariantsDefined on this element
ele-1: All FHIR elements must have a @value or children (: hasValue() or (children().count() > id.count()))
6. ContactPoint.use
Definition

Identifies the purpose for the contact point.

Control0..1
BindingThe codes SHALL be taken from ContactPointUse Use of contact point
Typecode
Is Modifiertrue
Requirements

Need to track the way a person uses this contact, so a user can choose which is appropriate for their purpose.

Comments

Applications can assume that a contact is current unless it explicitly says that it is temporary or old.

InvariantsDefined on this element
ele-1: All FHIR elements must have a @value or children (: hasValue() or (children().count() > id.count()))
7. ContactPoint.rank
Definition

Specifies a preferred order in which to use a set of contacts. ContactPoints with lower rank values are more preferred than those with higher rank values.

Control0..1
TypepositiveInt
Comments

Note that rank does not necessarily follow the order in which the contacts are represented in the instance.

InvariantsDefined on this element
ele-1: All FHIR elements must have a @value or children (: hasValue() or (children().count() > id.count()))
8. ContactPoint.period
Definition

Time period when the contact point was/is in use.

Control0..1
TypePeriod
InvariantsDefined on this element
ele-1: All FHIR elements must have a @value or children (: hasValue() or (children().count() > id.count()))
