PDS FHIR API - Including system effective dates
As a trust with local demographic records which are not synchronised with PDS
I want to be able to see the system effective date of attributes in the PDS record
So that I can identify whether the PDS record or my local record of the demographic attribute is more recent
With the current FHIR API I've no way of telling whether my local record or the PDS record is more recent. The HL7v3 interface using the PDS Advanced Trace interaction allowed historic information to be requested which included a system effective date on the key attributes. The FHIR resource only includes a system effective date on Date of Death. Other attributes include effective dates but these are business effective dates rather than system effective dates - these are different things.
