This dataset explains the Procedure or action that is or was performed on or for a patient. This can be a physical intervention like an operation, or less invasive like long term services, counseling, or hypnotherapy. A procedure is one of the event resources in the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) workflow specification.

This resource is used to record the details of current and historical procedures performed on or for a patient. A procedure is an activity that is performed on, with, or for a patient as part of the provision of care. Examples include surgical procedures, diagnostic procedures, endoscopic procedures, biopsies, counseling, physiotherapy, personal support services, adult day care services, non-emergency transportation, home modification, exercise, etc. Procedures may be performed by a healthcare professional, a service provider, a friend or relative or in some cases by the patient themselves.
This resource provides summary information about the occurrence of the procedure and is not intended to provide real-time snapshots of a procedure as it unfolds, though for long-running procedures such as psychotherapy, it could represent summary level information about overall progress. The creation of a resource to support detailed real-time procedure information awaits the identification of a specific implementation use-case to share such information.
The Procedure resource should not be used to capture an event if a more specific resource already exists – i.e. immunizations, drug administrations and communications. The boundary between determining whether an action is a Procedure (training or counseling) as opposed to a Communication is based on whether there’s a specific intent to change the mindset of the patient. Mere disclosure of the information would be considered communication. A process that involves verification of the patient’s comprehension or to change the patient’s mental state would be a Procedure.
Note that many diagnostic processes are procedures that generate Observations and Diagnostic Reports. In many cases, such an observation does not require an explicit representation of the procedure used to create the observation, but where there are details of interest about how the diagnostic procedure was performed, the Procedure resource is used to describe the activity.
Some diagnostic procedures might not have a Procedure record. The Procedure record is only necessary when there is a need to capture information about the physical intervention that was performed to capture the diagnostic information (e.g. anesthetic, incision, scope size, etc.)
A Task is a workflow step such as canceling an order, fulfilling an order, signing an order, merging a set of records, admitting a patient. Procedures are actions that are intended to result in a physical or mental change to or for the subject (e.g. surgery, physiotherapy, training, counseling). A Task resource often exists in parallel with clinical resources. For example, a Task might request fulfillment of a Service Request ordering a Procedure.

|Concept_Name||Name of the concept in the FHIR structure||string||required : 1|
|Computer_Ready_Name||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.||string||-|
|Type||The type the structure describes.||string||-|
|Dollar_Ref||The "$ref" string value contains a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) which identifies the location of the JSON value being referenced.||string||-|
|Description||A free text natural language description of the structure and its use||string||-|
|Items||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.||string||-|
|Required||The value of the keyword should be an array of unique strings. The data object to be valid should contain all properties with names equal to the elements in the keyword value.||string||-|
|Const||The value of this keyword can be anything. The data is valid if it is deeply equal to the value of the keyword.||string||-|
