  1. 1.1      Birth Facility Name

    SUMMARY

    Question

    How will we support the recording of the name of the birth facility

     

    Description / Context

    The nationally harmonised child health data calls for the name of the birth facility.

    Currently the AU base patient profile supports recording a birth address however the address type does not have a spot for facility / location name

    • Location /?

    Pros

    • Allows the use of codified data for birthplace (could also allow current model of address data type as option where no location resource is needed (i.e. home birth)

    Notes / Description

    Create a location resource profile to support and reference from the birth interaction

    Base Resource / Profile

    • Composition / ?
    • Location / ?

    Pros

     

    Cons

    • We would be required to look up the birth facility in the context of the birth, not the patient. As we are using composition to provide the birth context this would rely on composition.
