1 PatientThis object is the patient that is the subject of care related to this event. It is identifiable by patient ID or equivalent. The patient may be either human or animal.
2 LocationThis is a location identified as related to the event. This is usually the location where the event took place. Note that for shipping, the usual events are arrival at a location or departure from a location.
3 ReportThis object is any kind of persistent document created as a result of the event. This could be a paper report, film, electronic report, DICOM Study, etc. Issues related to medical records life cycle management are conveyed elsewhere.
4 Domain ResourceA logical object related to a health record event. This is any healthcare specific resource (object) not restricted to FHIR defined Resources.

6 UserA human participant not otherwise identified by some other category.
7 List(deprecated).
8 DoctorTypically, a licensed person who is providing or performing care related to the event, generally a physician.

14 Security Granularity Definition(deprecated) Relevant to certain RBAC security methodologies.
15 PractitionerAny person or organization responsible for providing care. This encompasses all forms of care, licensed or otherwise, and all sorts of teams and care groups. Note the distinction between practitioner and the doctor that actually provided the care to the patient.
16 Data DestinationThe source or destination for data transfer, when it does not match some other role.
17 Data RepositoryA source or destination for data transfer that acts as an archive, database, or similar role.
18 ScheduleAn object that holds schedule information. This could be an appointment book, availability information, etc.
19 CustomerAn organization or person that is the recipient of services. This could be an organization that is buying services for a patient, or a person that is buying services for an animal.
20 JobAn order, task, work item, procedure step, or other description of work to be performed; e.g. a particular instance of an MPPS.
21 Job StreamA list of jobs or a system that provides lists of jobs; e.g. an MWL SCP.
22 Table(Deprecated).
23 Routing CriteriaAn object that specifies or controls the routing or delivery of items. For example, a distribution list is the routing criteria for mail. The items delivered may be documents, jobs, or other objects.
24 QueryThe contents of a query. This is used to capture the contents of any kind of query. For security surveillance purposes knowing the queries being made is very important.
