The Condition Resource is used to record detailed information about conditions, problems or diagnoses recognized by a clinician. There are many uses including recording a diagnosis during an encounter; populating a problem list or a summary statement, such as a discharge summary.

The Condition Resource is used to record detailed information pertinent to a clinician’s assessment and assertion of a particular aspect of a person’s state of health. Examples of the condition include problems, diagnoses, concerns, issues. There are many uses of a condition which includes:
– Recording a problem, diagnosis, health concern or health issue during an encounter
– The use of such information to populate a problem list of a summary statement such as a discharge summary
This resource is used to record detailed information about a clinician’s assessment and assertion of a particular aspect of a patient’s state of health. It is intended for use to record information about a disease/illness identified from the application of clinical reasoning over the pathologic and pathophysiologic findings (diagnosis), or identification of health issues/situations that require ongoing monitoring and/or management (health issue/concern), or identification of health issues/situations considered harmful, potentially harmful and required to be investigated and managed (problems).
The condition resource may also be used to record a certain health state of a patient which does not normally present a negative outcome (until complications are predicted or detected), e.g. pregnancy. Examples of complications of pregnancy include hyperemesis gravidarum, preeclampsia, eclampsia – which are captured as problems/diagnoses.
Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) is a draft standard describing data formats and elements (known as “resources”) and an application programming interface (API) for exchanging electronic health records. The standard was created by the Health Level Seven International (HL7) health-care standards organization.
Its goal is to facilitate interoperation between legacy healthcare systems, to make it easy to provide healthcare information to healthcare providers and individuals on a wide variety of devices from computers to tablets to cell phones, and to allow third-party application developers to provide medical applications which can be easily integrated into existing systems.
FHIR provides an alternative to document-centric approaches by directly exposing discrete data elements as services. For example, basic elements of healthcare like patients, admissions, diagnostic reports and medications can each be retrieved and manipulated via their own resource URLs (Uniform Resource Locators). FHIR was supported at an American Medical Informatics Association meeting by many EHR (Electronic Health Record) vendors which value its open and extensible nature.

|Concept_Name||Name of the concept in the FHIR structure||string||required : 1|
|Computer_Ready_Name||A Computer-ready name (e.g. a token) that identifies the structure - suitable for code generation. Note that this name (and other names relevant for code generation, including element & slice names, codes etc) may collide with reserved words in the relevant target language, and code generators will need to handle this.||string||-|
|Type||The type the structure describes.||string||-|
|Description||A free text natural language description of the structure and its use||string||-|
|Items||The value of the keyword should be an object or an array of objects. If the keyword value is an object, then for the data array to be valid each item of the array should be valid according to the schema in this value.||string||-|
|Required||The value of the keyword should be an array of unique strings. The data object to be valid should contain all properties with names equal to the elements in the keyword value.||string||-|
|Const||The value of this keyword can be anything. The data is valid if it is deeply equal to the value of the keyword.||string||-|

|Condition||resourceType||This is a Condition resource|
|Condition||id||#/definitions/id||The logical id of the resource|
|Condition||meta||#/definitions/Meta||The metadata about the resource. This is content that is maintained by the infrastructure. Changes to the content might not always be associated with version changes to the resource.|

|Condition||contained||array||These resources do not have an independent existence apart from the resource that contains them - they cannot be identified independently|
|Condition||extension||array||May be used to represent additional information that is not part of the basic definition of the resource. To make the use of extensions safe and managable|
