8.5 Resource PractitionerRole - Content

Patient Administration Work Group Maturity Level : 2   Trial Use Security Category : Individual Compartments : Practitioner

A specific set of Roles/Locations/specialties/services that a practitioner may perform at an organization for a period of time.

PractitionerRole covers the recording of the location and types of services that Practitioners are able to provide for an organization.

The role, specialty, Location telecom and HealthcareService properties can be repeated if required in other instances of the PractitionerRole. Some systems record a collection of service values for a single location, others record the single service and the list of locations it is available. Both are acceptable options for representing this data.
Where availability, telecom, or other details are not the same across all healthcareservices, or locations a seperate PractitionerRole instance should be created.

Qualifications (from the Practitioner resource) do not imply a Role, but might be considered when an Organization allocates practitioners to roles within their organization, and could provide useful information (such as expiry information) which could need to be tracked in some situations to ensure they continue to be eligible for a specific role.

The CareTeam resource is also often used to provide details of a role that a practitioner is allocated to perform, but is usually scoped to a much finer granularity of care, and often within the specific context of a Patient , or functional role (e.g. Crisis planning team). In contrast the PractitionerRole is used in a more general sense to cover all the places that the practitioner is allocated to work (and specific details relevant to that role - such as a specific contact number, or electronic services endpoint).

Practitioner performs different roles within the same or even different organizations. Depending on jurisdiction and custom, it may be necessary to maintain a specific Practitioner Resource for each such role or have a single Practitioner with multiple roles. The role can be limited to a specific period, after which authorization for this role ends. Note that the represented organization need not necessarily be the (direct) employer of a Practitioner.

  • There is no address on the PractitionerRole as the location that is defined here contains the address.
    This prevents having to duplicate the address values across multiple resources.
As briefly noted in the boundaries and relationships section the PractitionerRole resource can be used to represent multiple locations in the one resource instance, however this should be done with care. When representing multiple locations in an instance, and/or multiple specialties, all details apply to all locations. Using that approach you cannot differentiate a different contact number, different availabilities, or different services at each location.
Hence maintaining these records needs to ensure that when changing a value, such as availability, it applies to all locations. If different values are required for the different locations, then a new instance will need to be created, and then split as appropriate. Existing resources referencing the original PractitionerRole instance will need to be updated to refer to the appropriate record.
For this reason we expect that it will be common to profile the location element down to a single location, simplifying overall usage, and the availabilities are clear that they apply to this location, and any referenced healthcare services.

Search parameters for this resource. The common parameters also apply. See Searching for more information about searching in REST, messaging, and services.
