This resource has 2 operations operations associated with it:

$apply Apply
$data-requirements Data Requirements

For more information about operations, including how they are invoked, see Operations .

12.18.10.1 Apply The apply operation realizes a definition in a specific context The official URL for this operation definition is http://hl7.org/fhir/OperationDefinition/ActivityDefinition-apply Formal Definition (as a OperationDefinition ). URL: [base]/ActivityDefinition/[id]/$apply This is not an idempotent operation In Parameters: Name Cardinality Type Binding Profile Documentation patient 1..1 Reference ( Patient ) The patient that is the target of the activity to be applied encounter 0..1 Reference ( Encounter ) The encounter in context, if any practitioner 0..1 Reference ( Practitioner ) The practitioner in context organization 0..1 Reference ( Organization ) The organization in context userType 0..1 CodeableConcept The type of user initiating the request, e.g. patient, healthcare provider, or specific type of healthcare provider (physician, nurse, etc.) userLanguage 0..1 CodeableConcept Preferred language of the person using the system userTaskContext 0..1 CodeableConcept The task the system user is performing, e.g. laboratory results review, medication list review, etc. This information can be used to tailor decision support outputs, such as recommended information resources setting 0..1 CodeableConcept The current setting of the request (inpatient, outpatient, etc) settingContext 0..1 CodeableConcept Additional detail about the setting of the request, if any Out Parameters: Name Cardinality Type Binding Profile Documentation return 1..1 Any The resource that is the result of applying the definition The result of invoking this operation is a resource of the type specified by the activity definition, with all the definitions resolved as appropriate for the type of resource. Any dynamicValue elements will be evaluated and the resulting value used for the values of the appropriate elements of the returned resource. If the ActivityDefinition includes library references, those libraries will be available to the evaluated expressions. If those libraries have parameters, those parameters will be bound by name to the parameters given to the operation 12.18.10.1.1 Examples Apply a citalopram prescription activity definition to a patient (Request): GET [base]/ActivityDefinition/citalopramPrescription/$apply?patient=124 Returned on successful application (Response): HTTP/1.1 200 OK <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <MedicationRequest xmlns="http://hl7.org/fhir"> <!-- This example demonstrates the result of an $apply operation for the citalopramPrescription activity definition. --> <id value="apply-operation-response"/> <text> <status value="generated"/> <div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> Generated... </div> </text> <contained> <Medication> <id value="citalopramMedication"/> <code> <coding> <system value="http://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/umls/rxnorm"/> <code value="200371"/> </coding> <text value="citalopram"/> </code> <form> <coding> <system value="http://snomed.info/sct"/> <code value="385055001"/> <display value="Tablet dose form"/> </coding> <text value="Tablet dose form"/> </form> <ingredient> <itemReference> <reference value="#citalopramSubstance"/> </itemReference> <amount> <numerator> <value value="20"/> <unit value="mg"/> </numerator> <denominator> <value value="1"/> <unit value="{tbl}"/> </denominator> </amount> </ingredient> </Medication> </contained> <contained> <Substance> <id value="citalopramSubstance"/> <code> <coding> <system value="http://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/umls/rxnorm"/> <code value="2556"/> </coding> <text value="citalopram"/> </code> </Substance> </contained> <definition> <reference value="ActivityDefinition/citalopramPrescription"/> </definition> <status value="draft"/> <intent value="proposal"/> <medicationReference> <reference value="#citalopramMedication"/> </medicationReference> <subject> <reference value="Patient/124"/> </subject> <dosageInstruction> <text value="1 tablet oral 1 time daily"/> <timing> <repeat> <frequency value="1"/> <period value="1"/> <periodUnit value="d"/> </repeat> </timing> <route> <coding> <code value="26643006"/> <display value="Oral route (qualifier value)"/> </coding> <text value="Oral route (qualifier value)"/> </route> <doseQuantity> <value value="1"/> <unit value="{tbl}"/> </doseQuantity> </dosageInstruction> <dispenseRequest> <numberOfRepeatsAllowed value="3"/> <quantity> <value value="30"/> <unit value="{tbl}"/> </quantity> </dispenseRequest> </MedicationRequest>   12.18.10.2 Data Requirements The data-requirements operation aggregates and returns the parameters and data requirements for the activity definition and all its dependencies as a single module definition library The official URL for this operation definition is http://hl7.org/fhir/OperationDefinition/ActivityDefinition-data-requirements Formal Definition (as a OperationDefinition ). URL: [base]/ActivityDefinition/[id]/$data-requirements This is not an idempotent operation Out Parameters: Name Cardinality Type Binding Profile Documentation return 1..1 Library The result of the requirements gathering represented as a module-definition Library that describes the aggregate parameters, data requirements, and dependencies of the activity definition Note: as this the only out parameter, it is a resource, and it has the name 'return', the result of this operation is returned directly as a resource The effect of invoking this operation is to determine the aggregate set of data requirements and dependencies for the activity definition. The result is a Library resource with a type of module-definition that contains all the parameter definitions and data requirements of the activity definition and any libraries referenced by it. Implementations SHOULD aggregate data requirements intelligently (i.e. by collapsing overlapping data requirements) 12.18.10.2.1 Examples Request data requirements for the administer zika virus exposure assessment activity definition (Request): GET [base]/ActivityDefinition/administer-zika-virus-exposure-assessment/$data-requirements Returned on successful evaluation (Response): HTTP/1.1 200 OK { "resourceType": "Library", "type": { "coding": [ { "code": "module-definition" } ] }, "relatedArtifact": [ { "type": "depends-on", "display": "Zika Affected Areas", "resource": { "reference": "ValueSet/zika-affected-areas" } }, { "type": "depends-on", "display": "Pregnancy", "resource": { "identifier": "urn:oid:X.Y.Z", "display": "Pregnancy value set" } }, { "type": "depends-on", "display": "Zika Exposure Assessment", "resource": { "identifier": "urn:oid:X.Y.Z", "display": "Zika Virus Exposure Assessment value set" } }, { "type": "depends-on", "display": "Zika Virus Signs and Symptoms", "url": "https://phinvads.cdc.gov/vads/ViewValueSet.action?oid=2.16.840.1.114222.4.11.7459", "resource": { "identifier": "urn:oid:2.16.840.1.114222.4.11.7459", "display": "Zika Virus Signs and Symptoms value set" } }, ] "dataRequirement": [ { "type": "Condition", "codeFilter": [ { "path": "code", "valueSetString": "Pregnancy" } ] }, { "type": "Patient" }, { "type": "Observation", "codeFilter": [ { "path": "code", "valueSetString": [ "Zika Exposure Assessment" ] }, { "path": "status", "valueCode": [ "final" ] } ] }, { "type": "Condition", "codeFilter": [ { "path": "category", "valueCode": [ "diagnosis" ] }, { "path": "clinicalStatus", "valueCode": [ "confirmed" ] }, { "path": "code", "valueSetString": "Zika Virus Signs and Symptoms" } ] } ] }
