HL7 FHIR Implementation Guide: minimal Common Oncology Data Elements (mCODE), v0.9.0

- Local Development build (v0.9.0). See the Directory of published versions

mCODE FHIR Examples

This section provides some examples how mCODE elements may be represented in a FHIR instance which conforms to this implementation guide.


Additional Notes

  • The narrative rendering of the FHIR examples may not exactly match the wording or order of the structured portion of the FHIR examples. This is on purpose since it is allowed for an implementation to present the data in a way that is understandable to the end user so long as the meaning and context of the structured and coded content is preserved.
  • The narrative rendering might also contain data not explicitly appearing in the structured section of the FHIR example. In this case, rather than including contained resources, our example assumes this content is generated implicitly by the backend application retrieving and parsing data from the FHIR references included in the structured section of the example. For example, in mCODEGenomicsReportExample01, the narrative section contains information about the genetic mutation tested and variant found, however the coded section just includes the external references to each.
  • The FHIR examples conform to the HL7 FHIR Argonaut IG where applicable and is subject to change with subsequent releases.
  • Proprietary content like AJCC staging categories may appear in some of these examples solely for the purposes of illustration only. It is expected that all implementers will adhere to licensing requirements as appropriate.
