In https://hl7.org/fhir/r4/search.html#token and  https://hl7.org/fhir/dstu2/search.html#token, it seems to imply that searches for identifier codes regardless of system are allowed in the standard:

  • [parameter]=[code]: the value of [code] matches a Coding.code or Identifier.value irrespective of the value of the system property

Are these supported?  I have tried it in dstu2 and I get 400 errors when I leave off the system, all other things seeming the same.

Thanks,

Cade

Hello,

You need to use [parameter]=[system]|[code] to search by identifier - http://fhir.cerner.com/millennium/r4/base/individuals/patient/#parameters

Thanks, I understand that is the current functionality and that the FHIR spec is not currently completely implemented.

We are expecting this to be changed in a future release.

Thanks,

As per group guidelines, we cannot comment about future release.

Thank You!
