Editor please Add Section 4.5

3:4.5 FHIR Representation of Document Sharing Metadata

This section documents the mapping between IHE Document Sharing Metadata and the FHIR Resources.

3:4.5.1 Metadata Object Types mapped to FHIR

For details on FHIR resources and data types see HL7 FHIR http://hl7.org/fhir/R4/index.html.

Some Document Sharing Metadata attributes must be treated as contained FHIR Resources. These are indicated in with a “Note 1” and the word contained. The details of the FHIR contained mechanism is found at http://hl7.org/fhir/R4/references.html#contained.

When encoding XDS identifiers into FHIR Resource data elements of type Identifier, the FHIR notation of OIDs and UUIDs uses the system identifier of urn:ietf:rfc:3986. For more details and examples, see ITI TF-2: Appendix E.3 “FHIR Identifier Type”.

3:4.5.1.1 DocumentEntry Metadata Attributes

The documented mapping of the metadata elements associated with a Document Sharing DocumentEntry object attributes.

Note: FHIR contains an informative mapping that is intended to be equivalent and can be found at http://hl7.org/fhir/R4/documentreference-mappings.html#xds. For the purposes of IHE MHD conformance the mapping documented here (in IHE) are normative.

3:4.5.1.2 DocumentReference StructureDefinition

The conformance requirements are different between a Provide Document Bundle ITI-65 transaction and a Find Document References ITI-67 transaction, and between Minimal Metadata, Comprehensive Metadata, and UnContained References.

The conformance requirements are different between Comprehensive, minimal, and UnContained References. The canonical URI is found as the “Defining URL:”:

Resources are not required to carry the meta.profile element and may only carry the profile element defined for the Provide Document Bundle [ITI-65] transaction, as the Receiver is not required to add the profile tags. The value of the meta.profile is a soft indicator of conformance expectation. Receivers may choose to validate actual conformance and fail transactions due to non-conformance.

3:4.5.2 SubmissionSet Metadata Attributes

The documented mapping of the metadata elements associated with a Document Sharing SubmissionSet object attributes.

3:4.5.2.1 SubmissionSet List StructureDefinition

The conformance requirements are different between Comprehensive, Minimal, and UnContained References. The canonical URI is found as the “Defining URL:”:

Resources are not required to carry the meta.profile element and may only carry the profile element defined for the Provide Document Bundle ITI-65 transaction, as the Receiver is not required to add the profile tags. The value of the meta.profile is a soft indicator of conformance expectation. Receivers may choose to validate actual conformance and fail transactions due to non-conformance.

3:4.5.3 Folder Metadata Attributes

The documented mapping of the metadata elements associated with a Document Sharing Folder object attributes.

Note that FHIR List Resource in the FHIR core specification does not include a Mapping to XDS.

3:4.5.3.1 Folder StructureDefinition

The conformance requirements are different between Comprehensive and Minimal metadata. The canonical URI is found as the “Defining URL:”:

Resources are not required to carry the meta.profile element and may only carry the profile element defined for the Provide Document Bundle ITI-65 transaction, as the Receiver is not required to add the profile tags. The value of the meta.profile is a soft indicator of conformance expectation. Receivers may choose to validate actual conformance and fail transactions due to non-conformance.
