US Core Patient Profile

This guide adopts, without modification, the US Core Patient Profile.

The US Core Patient Profile sets minimum expectations for the Patient resource to record, search, and fetch basic demographics and other administrative information about an individual patient. It identifies which core elements, extensions, vocabularies and value sets SHALL be present in the resource when using this profile.

Because we specify no further constraints or extensions, the profile content is not replicated here. Instead we refer readers to the US Core Patient Profile documentation.
