NameCard.TypeConstraints and Usage
.  Observation 0..*Observationobs-6: dataAbsentReason SHALL only be present if Observation.value[x] is not present
obs-7: Component code SHALL not be same as observation code
Definition:
Measurements and simple assertions made about a patient, device or other subject.


Comments:
At present, only supported observations are height and weight.

..  id 1..1idDefinition:
The logical id of the resource, as used in the URL for the resource. Once assigned, this value never changes.


Comments:
Usage Note: This will usually be a GUID and is assigned by the sending application.

..  status 1..1codeBinding: ObservationStatus (required): Codes providing the status of an observation.


Fixed Value: final
Definition:
The status of the result value.


Comments:
Fixed value: final

..  category 1..1Shared Health CodeableConcept CodeBinding: Observation Category Codes (example): Codes for high level observation categories .


Definition:
A concept that may be defined by a formal reference to a terminology or ontology or may be provided by text.


Comments:
codes are from HL7 and system URL is http://hl7.org/fhir/observation-category.

...  coding 1..*CodingSlice: Unordered, Open by value:system
Definition:
A reference to a code defined by a terminology system.


Comments:
Codes may be defined very casually in enumerations, or code lists, up to very formal definitions such as SNOMED CT - see the HL7 v3 Core Principles for more information. Ordering of codings is undefined and SHALL NOT be used to infer meaning. Generally, at most only one of the coding values will be labelled as UserSelected = true.

....  system 1..1uriDefinition:
The identification of the code system that defines the meaning of the symbol in the code.


Comments:
This is the URI that represents the coding system as defined within the binding.

....  code 1..1codeDefinition:
A symbol in syntax defined by the system. The symbol may be a predefined code or an expression in a syntax defined by the coding system (e.g. post-coordination).

Definition:
Identification of the type of measurement/observation that was made about the patient. The only two allowable types are height and weight.


Comments:

Comments:
Conformance Rule: When sending either a height or weight observation, the effective date of the observation must be included for it to meaningful.

..  value[x]
     (valueQuantity)
1..1Shared Health Quantityqty-3: If a code for the unit is present, the system SHALL also be present
Definition:
A measured amount (or an amount that can potentially be measured). Note that measured amounts include amounts that are not precisely quantified, including amounts involving arbitrary units and floating currencies.


Comments:
Conformance Rule: For height, set measurement in centimeters (code = cm). For weight, set measurement in kilograms (code = kg)
