Case Based Surveillance Implementation Guide - Local Development build (v0.2.1). See the Directory of published versions



The Case Based Surveillance (CBS) Implementation Guide is based on FHIR Version R4 and defines the minimum set of constraints on the FHIR resources to create the CBS Profiles. This is a proof of concept/demonstration FHIR IG based around representation of data included as part of public health case surveillance Message Mapping Guides (MMGs). Currently, there is one way to implement the CBS IG:

  1. Profile Only Support: Systems may support only the CBS Profiles to represent public health information.

CBS Profiles

The list of CBS Profiles is shown below. Each profile defines the minimum mandatory elements, extensions and terminology requirements that MUST be present. For each profile, requirements and guidance are given in a simple narrative summary. A formal hierarchical table that presents a logical view of the content in both a differential and snapshot view is also provided along with references to appropriate terminologies and examples.
