NamingSystem.kind"identifier" 
NamingSystem.dateCurrent date, e.g. 2017-09-09  
NamingSystem.uniqueId
  • uniqueId: BackboneElement
    • type = "uri"
    • value = "urn:uuid:" + Resource id 
The uniqueId value is the value that is returned to callers in Identifier.system alongside an identifier. Callers can then attempt to retrieve additional information about the namespace (in the form of a NamingSystem resource) by providing this value in the "value" search param.
