Hi Team,

When I try to create patient (R4) with a SSN that already exists on another patient, I will get resource in conflict error:
{
    "resourceType""OperationOutcome",
    "issue": [
        {
            "severity""error",
            "code""conflict",
            "details": {
                "text""Current state of resource in conflict"
            }
        }
    ]
} But the error response does not indicate which field is in conflict. Is there a way to tell it's SSN in conflict? Thanks,
Rui

Hi Rui,

I am able to confirm that the request failed because the SSN was a duplicate of another patient. Unfortunately this type of error message is not something we expose at this time.

Thank you,

Hi Ben,

What are the possible scenarios that can cause this conflict error when using Patient.Create R4 API?
Except SSN, we also allow user to enter family name, given name, dob, gender, address(line, city, state, country, postal code), phone numbers, emails on UI, is it possible that these fields will cause conflict error as well?
Just want to narrow down the possible cause so we can provide a user friendly error message.

Thanks,
Rui

Hi Rui,

The fields you mentioned and listed will likely not introduce any conflict errors. The identifier field is most likely where you would see the most issues in regards to conflicts.

Thanks,
