DiagnosticReport is a clinical FHIR Resource that represents the results of a diagnostic test ordered by or performed by a provider. This resource is most commonly used to represent laboratory results, but can be used for a wider variety of diagnostic tests, such as radiology interpretations.
DiagnosticReport is commonly used with Observation to represent the results of a diagnostic test.
While some payers may make this information available, many 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 ID of the patient that the diagnostic report was created for. We recommend using this search parameter along with the
The category of the diagnostic report.
The date range over which the report is issued.
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.
