General information

Name: EpisodeOfCare
Version: 1.0
Publication date: 24-04-2017
Status wikipage: final

This FHIR profile is based on version 1.2 of the building block ConcernForTransfer. The latest version of this building block can be found here on the wiki.

Concept

An association between a patient and an organization / healthcare provider(s) during which time encounters may occur. The managing organization assumes a level of responsibility for the patient during this time.

In many cases, this represents a period of time where the Healthcare Provider has some level of responsibility for the care of the patient regarding a specific condition or problem, even if not currently participating in an encounter.

These resources are typically known in existing systems as:

  • EpisodeOfCare: Case, Program, Problem, Episode
  • Encounter: Visit, Contact

Purpose

The primary difference between the EpisodeOfCare and the Encounter is that the Encounter records the details of an activity directly relating to the patient, while the EpisodeOfCare is the container that can link a series of Encounters together for problems/issues.

This difference is a similar difference between the EpisodeOfCare and a CarePlan. The EpisodeOfCare is a tracking resource, rather than a planning resource. The EpisodeOfCare usually exists before the CarePlan. You don't need a CarePlan to use an EpisodeOfCare.
