HL7 FHIR® Implementation Guide: Vital Records Birth and Fetal Death Reporting, Release 1 - US Realm
This is a FHIR IG that defines birth and fetal death reporting in the USA. Birth and fetal death reporting includes the transmission of data from health care providers to jurisdictional Vital Records Offices and national health statistics agencies. This includes data associated with the mother of the baby or fetus as well as data associated directly with the labor and delivery encounter at the responsible healthcare facility.

This implementation guide (IG) defines a series of FHIR profiles on the Composition resource to represent electronic birth and fetal death reporting (BFDR) reports. It includes the content of medical/health information on live births and fetal deaths for select state and federal birth and fetal death reporting, as indicated in the 2003 Revision of the U.S. Standard Certificate of Live Birth and the U.S. Standard Report of Fetal Death. Additionally, it includes the content that is exchanged between electronic health record (EHR) systems, jurisdictions, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/ National Center for Health Statistics (CDC/NCHS).
