HL7 FHIR Profile: Skin and Wound Assessment, Version 0.5.0

Primary logical models defined as part of this Implementation Guide

Name Definition
PodiatryWoundCondition

Statement of presence of wound on or near the foot. The WoundIdentifier serves as a link between this assertion and assessments of the wound that might occur at later times. Multiple wound assessments can be associated with a single wound.

SkinAssessmentPanel

A panel that contains all of the necessary elements needed for a skin nursing assessment.

WoundAssessmentPanel

Group of observations regarding the properties and severity of a wound.

WoundBedAssessment

The appearance and color of the base (bed) of the wound, together with the percentage of the bed with each type of appearance and color. The appearance and appearance percentage arrays must be the same length, and the order in the arrays is significant*; the elements at the same array position shall be interpreted as pairs. The same rule applies to the color and color percentage arrays. The number of color areas and appearance areas do not have to be the same.

*See https://www.hl7.org/fhir/xml.html: When an element is allowed to repeat, the elements are ordered, and the technical infrastructure needs to be able to access the items in the right order. https://www.hl7.org/fhir/json.html The order of properties of an object is not significant in the JSON representation, though order within an array SHALL be maintained.

WoundCondition

A determination that a particular type of wound that exists at a particular body site. The WoundIdentifier serves as a link between this assertion and assessments of the wound that might occur at later times. Multiple wound assessments can be associated with a single wound.

WoundEdgeAssessment

The state of the tissue at the edge of the wound.

WoundExudateAssessment

Description of the fluid produced by a wound.

WoundSize

The estimated or measured dimensions of a wound.

WoundTunnelingAssessment

Observation of one or more tunnels on a single wound. The length and clockface direction arrays must be the same length, and the order in the arrays is significant*; the elements at the same array position shall be interpreted as pairs.

*See https://www.hl7.org/fhir/xml.html: When an element is allowed to repeat, the elements are ordered, and the technical infrastructure needs to be able to access the items in the right order. https://www.hl7.org/fhir/json.html The order of properties of an object is not significant in the JSON representation, though order within an array SHALL be maintained.

WoundUnderminingAssessment

Assessment of deep tissue (subcutaneous fat and muscle) damage around the wound margin. If there is more than one undermining The undermining length and clock direction arrays must be the same length, and the order in the arrays is significant*; the elements at the same array position shall be interpreted as pairs.

*See https://www.hl7.org/fhir/xml.html: When an element is allowed to repeat, the elements are ordered, and the technical infrastructure needs to be able to access the items in the right order. https://www.hl7.org/fhir/json.html The order of properties of an object is not significant in the JSON representation, though order within an array SHALL be maintained.
