Resources used in Access Document

Definitions of mandatory, required and optional

Throughout the profile pages within the specification we have a label for each data item named “Optionality”, which details whether or not it has to be included in the resource. This item has 3 possible values:

  1. Mandatory - if the data item MUST be recorded in the resource every time it is produced.
  2. Required - if the system that is providing the data item contains this piece of data then it MUST include it in the resource.
  3. Optional - the system has the option to include this data if it is available.
