5.2 Resource RelatedPerson - Content

This resource maintained by the Patient Administration Work Group

Information about a person that is involved in the care for a patient, but who is not the target of healthcare, nor has a formal responsibility in the care process.

5.2.1 Scope and Usage

RelatedPersons typically have a personal or non-healthcare-specific professional relationship to the patient. A RelatedPerson resource is primarily used for attribution of information, since RelatedPersons are often a source of information about the patient. For keeping information about people for contact purposes for a patient, use a Patient's Contact element. Some individuals may serve as both a Patient's Contact and a Related Person.

Example RelatedPersons are:

  • A patient's wife or husband
  • A patient's relatives or friends
  • A neighbor bringing a patient to the hospital
  • The owner or trainer of a horse
  • A patient's attorney or guardian
