PractitionerRole is a supporting FHIR resource that details a specific set of role/location/specialty/service combinations that a practitioner may perform at an organization for a period of time.
In contrast to many of the other resources in the Flexpa that are patient-specific, it serves as a foundational resource that supports the clinical and financial resources in the API.
As a result, PractitionerRole 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 supporting resource, many payers make this available, but many only support a read operation and do not fully support search.
