Encounter Split Discussions/Movements

The structure of Encounter is being reconsidered to determine if a split into multiple resources, or re-organization makes sense. The main area was to clarify the differences between transfers, admissions and regular encounters with practitioners.

Admission EncounterInteraction between patient and organization/location/healthcare institution
Practitioner Encounteractual interaction between patient and practitioners, or between practitioners about a patient
Movement/TransferChanging location, class/status

What impact would any of these changes have on other resources that currently reference encounter?

Expected that nothing would reference Movements, only encounter.

Maybe create a work in progress for R5 to see a new backbone could look?

In order to move this forward suggest that we prepare some example data (in the spreadsheet) to see how it could look.

Movement/Transfer backbone

Status, Location (loc/status/loc type), Class, subject status, identifier, type, period (planned/actual), account?, partof-encounter
