CareTeam is a clinical FHIR Resource that lists the people and organizations who participate in the coordination and delivery of care for a patient.
Accessing a patient's care teams can aid in workflows such as collaborating with a patient's providers on their care.
Many payers make this available in a basic form derived from a patient's claims, but some also provide a more detailed view of the patient's care team if they have a more robust provider-payer clinical data exchange, such as quality measures.
The full list of search parameters can be found here. Some of the most important are:
The ID of a patient that the care teams are helping. We recommend using this search parameter along with the
The status of the care team. We recommend using the
The time period the care team was active with the patient.
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.
