Scope of coverage

The scope of this resource is to define a compartment in the specification (e.g. the patient compartment), or for a server to declare how it supports a compartment as defined in the specification. It may also be used to define new compartments, but the methodological consequences of this are unknown, and this isn't a focus.

The resource will be suitable for use in the same way the other conformance resources are. (All locales)

RIM scope

N/a - out of scope for the RIM

Resource appropriateness

The specification already defines the concept of a compartment, and the build tool internally defines what each compartment means in a computable way. However this is not published by the build tool in any computable fashion. Nor is there any meaningful way to represent this in a conformance statement of a server, but it makes a difference to implementers, who may need or want to know what compartments a server offers, and how it decides that resources are in the compartment. This resource just makes a computable declaration of these things possible from a conformance resource. hence, it's requirements for storage etc match the conformance resource.

Expected implementations

  • Build tool
  • Health intersections server
  • others?

Content sources

  • Specification

Example Scenarios

see note above

Resource Relationships

  • will be referred to explicitly from the Conformance resource
  • may be referred to explicitly from the IG resource, but will be able to included there even if not specifically referenced


will be implemented prior to Montreal (may 2016) connectathon
