Planned Tracker Items:

FHIR-25728 - Getting issue details... STATUS  We would like to include additional guidance in the spec on how to work with identifiers.

This could be on:

This should include details on:

  • Representations with EMPI (should be on patient page) - this would include notes to match and merge
  • National Provider Index (NPI) - (on practitioner page)
  • Facility Management (on administrative page)
  • Cross resource management (on datatypes)
  • relationship to Linkage Resource (on datatypes)
  • using type/system correctly (on datatypes)
  • profiling resources for identifiers (when to slice by system and when to slice by type) (on datatypes)
  • uniqueness (on datatypes)
  • incompleteness (on datatypes)
  • Explanations of some use cases

Given the scope of what is already around the place, best alternative likely not a new page, but to add additional content in each of the locations to strengthen the usage guidance

  • Drew Torres to provide some additional information on using identifiers across sites  

FHIR-17671 - Getting issue details... STATUS  Drew Torres can you come along to our next call to discuss this one further?
