Locations

You will find many FHIR Location ids throughout the resources, such as place of birth, patient addresses, places of registration etc. These return FHIR Location resources that refer either to either facilities with address and contact details, or administrative areas such as districts and states. FHIR Locations also contian multiple identifiers including an ID that should be defined by your government statistical department and aligns across all systems.
In OpenCRVS we extend FHIR Locations to include other statistical data related to calculating civil registration performance estimates such as the crude birth rate & populations for a location by year.
FHIR Locations are saved into OpenCRVS during configuration.
