Extensions

The profiles in this specification make use of the extensions that are maintained by external specifications, notably extensions published by IPS-UV and the CA Baseline.

These extensions are socialized to ensure that, if the data is available (and appropriate) to include in a patient summary, modeling of that data will be consistent.

Note: Implementors should be aware of known issues that the Simplifier tool has for rendering extensions.

  • Extensions on elements with choice of data type will not render in the differential when displayed in Simplifier. In these cases, the extension will be called out.
