Method: fhir.Patient-everything

Full name: projects.locations.datasets.fhirStores.fhir.Patient-everything

Retrieves a Patient resource and resources related to that patient.

Implements the FHIR extended operation Patient-everything (DSTU2, STU3, R4).

On success, the response body contains a JSON-encoded representation of a Bundle resource of type searchset, containing the results of the operation. Errors generated by the FHIR store contain a JSON-encoded OperationOutcome resource describing the reason for the error. If the request cannot be mapped to a valid API method on a FHIR store, a generic GCP error might be returned instead.

The resources in scope for the response are:

  • The patient resource itself.
  • All the resources directly referenced by the patient resource.
  • Resources directly referencing the patient resource that meet the inclusion criteria. The inclusion criteria are based on the membership rules in the patient compartment definition (DSTU2, STU3, R4), which details the eligible resource types and referencing search parameters.

For samples that show how to call Patient-everything, see Getting all patient compartment resources.
