DocumentReference read

get/DocumentReference/{id}
Page View

This resource contains metadata for any kind of document so that you can locate the document in a system. Typically, you may use this as a reference in another resource type that includes the subject, author, and context for a related document.

You may want to use this resource if:

  • You want raw XML data.
  • You want to pick which documents to view or retrieve.

If you’re familiar with our Redox data models, this is the FHIR® representation of the ClinicalSummary.DocumentGet. Refer to the DocumentGet schema. Or, if you only want to retrieve the patient’s latest CDA, refer to the PatientQuery schema.

You can review, retrieve, create, or edit document records.

read

Review a specific DocumentReference resource with metadata for a document related to a patient, visit, or other clinical concept.

To use a read interaction, you must know the related resource ID, which you may not have in your real workflows. A read is likely only a follow-up option after receiving the specific resource in a recent FHIR® passthrough or data on demand exchange.

Typically, you should use the more flexible _search with query parameters, unless you're guaranteed to request data directly from a FHIR® server using the resource ID. Learn more about using FHIR® identifiers.
