Provider class

In Experience Data Model (XDM), the Provider class captures the minimum set of properties that define a provider business entity (such as a healthcare provider or insurance provider).

Class structure

Property Data type Description
providerName Person name The name of the provider.
_id String A unique, system-generated string identifier for the record. This field is used to track the uniqueness of an individual record, prevent duplication of data, and to look up that record in downstream services.

Since this field is system-generated, it does not be supplied an explicit value during data ingestion. However, you can still opt to supply your own unique ID values if you wish.
providerId String A unique identifier for the provider.

The class can be extended with the Healthcare Provider field group to describe further details about a healthcare provider.
