This dataset contains the base definition for all the elements contained inside a resource. All elements, whether defined as a data type (including primitives) or as part of a resource structure, have this base content.

This base content contains:
– An internal Id
There are three kinds of descendant types that specialize Element:
– Primitive data types, that add a primitive value property of the specified type
– Complex data types, that add their own children (all of which are also elements)
– Backbone Element, A specialization that adds modifier extension, which is the super-type of all the element types defined in resource definitions (e.g. Patient.contact).
Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) is a draft standard describing data formats and elements (known as “resources”) and an application programming interface (API) for exchanging electronic health records. The standard was created by the Health Level Seven International (HL7) health-care standards organization.
Its goal is to facilitate interoperation between legacy healthcare systems, to make it easy to provide healthcare information to healthcare providers and individuals on a wide variety of devices from computers to tablets to cell phones, and to allow third-party application developers to provide medical applications which can be easily integrated into existing systems.
FHIR provides an alternative to document-centric approaches by directly exposing discrete data elements as services. For example, basic elements of healthcare like patients, admissions, diagnostic reports and medications can each be retrieved and manipulated via their own resource URLs (Uniform Resource Locators). FHIR was supported at an American Medical Informatics Association meeting by many EHR (Electronic Health Record) vendors which value its open and extensible nature.

FHIR Element Resource, Electronic Health Records Exchange Through FHIR
|Name of the concept in the FHIR structure
|required : 1
|A Computer-ready name (e.g. a token) that identifies the structure - suitable for code generation. Note that this name (and other names relevant for code generation, including element & slice names, codes etc) may collide with reserved words in the relevant target language, and code generators will need to handle this.
|The type the structure describes.
|A free text natural language description of the structure and its use
|The value of the keyword should be an object or an array of objects. If the keyword value is an object, then for the data array to be valid each item of the array should be valid according to the schema in this value.
|Computer Ready Name
|Unique id for the element within a resource (for internal references). This may be any string value that does not contain spaces.
|May be used to represent additional information that is not part of the basic definition of the element. To make the use of extensions safe and managable
