Introduction and scope

The profile originates from the base resource Practitioner. The profile contains information and metadata about the practitioner (eg. oncologist or nurse) who performs the registrations in the patient's EHR, thus identifying the health care personnel.



The profile contains three elements: identifier, name and qualification. The element identifier contains a unique personnel ID for each practitioner. The element name contains the name of the practitioner. The last element qualification states the practitioner's qualifications and therefore, the element is sliced into three slices. All slices contain a SNOMED CT code and serve as examples of practitioner qualifications.
