Practitioner

Status

Released. Further enhancements planned.

Overview

The Practitioner resource contains basic demographic information about non-patient users.

Although there is a 1-to-1 mapping between a PKB [[Patient]] and a FHIR Patient, non-Patient user types are more complicated.

PKB has multiple non-Patient user types, but they are all considered to be Practitioners in FHIR. These include:

As such, although PKB does not yet permit all of the above user types to authenticate against the FHIR® API, callers should be aware that the Practitioner resource itself does not directly indicate the PKB user type of the associated user.

Callers should not assume that a FHIR Practitioner is a PKB [[Professional]].
