Base StructureDefinition for ParameterDefinition Type: The parameters to the module. This collection specifies both the input and output parameters. Input parameters are provided by the caller as part of the $evaluate operation. Output parameters are included in the GuidanceResponse.
Unique id for inter-element referencing
Unique id for the element within a resource (for internal references). This may be any string value that does not contain spaces.
Additional content defined by implementations
May be used to represent additional information that is not part of the basic definition of the element. To make the use of extensions safe and manageable, there is a strict set of governance applied to the definition and use of extensions. Though any implementer can define an extension, there is a set of requirements that SHALL be met as part of the definition of the extension.
There can be no stigma associated with the use of extensions by any application, project, or standard - regardless of the institution or jurisdiction that uses or defines the extensions. The use of extensions is what allows the FHIR specification to retain a core level of simplicity for everyone.
Name used to access the parameter value
The name of the parameter used to allow access to the value of the parameter in evaluation contexts.
in | out
Whether the parameter is input or output for the module.
The minimum number of times this parameter SHALL appear in the request or response.
Maximum cardinality (a number of *)
The maximum number of times this element is permitted to appear in the request or response.
A brief description of the parameter
A brief discussion of what the parameter is for and how it is used by the module.
What type of value
The type of the parameter.
What profile the value is expected to be
If specified, this indicates a profile that the input data must conform to, or that the output data will conform to.
