  4. Action Items


Request from Lisa Nelson to request a quarter to discuss in person tracker issues in Sydney

Sonja requests to discuss tracker FHIR 25427 - request to add address to PractitionerRole to handle administrative addresses (not locational) that are dedicated specifically for that individual, and are not shared among others. This is very similar to the structure

This is common with high profile practitioners who have specific addresses (P.O. Box) and contact details for things like Speaking Engagement requests, billing, credentialing requests, ...
The address on the Location was the original intention for PractitionerRoles, however it isn't intended to handle po boxes.

The address on Organization is close, however where is only used for a single person, appears to be excessive.

Unclear if this is a core, standard extension or US core extension.
