Location is a supporting FHIR resource containing the details and position information for a physical place where services are provided and resources and resources may be stored, found, contained, or accommodated.
In contrast to many of the other resources available through Flexpa that are patient-specific, it serves as a foundational resource that supports the clinical and financial resources in the API.
For instance, an AllergyIntolerance may have been documented at a particular Location or an ExplanationOfBenefit may have been issued for a particular Location.
As a result, Location is most often used as part of an
include parameter in a search request to retrieve the related resources or is accessed via a read with a specific FHIR resource ID obtained from a financial or clinical resource.
Many payers will not support open searches for this resource.
As a core supporting resource, almost all payers make this available, but many only support a read operation and do not fully support search.
