  • The FHIR Composition Resource represents a set of healthcare-related information that is assembled together into a single logical document that provides a single coherent statement of meaning, establishes its own context and that has clinical attestation with regard to who is making the statement.
  •  For more information on the FHIR Composition  resource, please refer
