CarePlan is a clinical FHIR Resource that describes how one or more practitioners intend to deliver care for a particular patient, possibly limited to care for a specific condition or set of conditions.
Accessing a patient's care plans can aid in workflows such as working with the patient to determine their overall treatment.
While some payers may make this information available, most do not have this data unless it is submitted to the payer by providers for quality measures or other provider/payer data exchange programs, as it is not included with or derived from core claims generation.
The full list of search parameters can be found here. Some of the most important are:
The identity of a patient that the care plans are about. We recommend using this search parameter along with the
The status of the care plan
The category of the care plan
While some servers may support a resource-level search without any parameters, not all do. We recommend using the format below with the patient ID via the
$PATIENT_ID wildcard as a search parameter.
