8.15 Resource DeviceDefinition - Content

Orders and Observations Work Group Maturity Level : 0 1   Trial Use Security Category : Anonymous Compartments : Not linked to any defined compartments

The characteristics, operational status and capabilities of a medical-related component of a medical device.

The DeviceDefinition resource is used to describe the characteristics and capabilities of a medical device.

The DeviceDefinition resource contains the "catalog" definition of a device - whether that definition is authored by the regulatory entities, or it is a local definition that includes assembled device configurations. The DeviceDefinition allows defining hierarchical device configurations (devices as part of other devices).

Device vs deviceDefinition: The Device resource is meant to refer to a physical instance of a device - hence having attributes like lot number, patient, location, which the DeviceDefinition resource does not have.

This resource is referenced by AdministrableProductDefinition , CatalogEntry , ClinicalUseIssue , Device , itself, MedicinalProductPackaged PackagedProductDefinition and MedicinalProductPharmaceutical RegulatedAuthorization .

This resource does not implement any patterns.
