This is useful when you need to add a new data type for a Z-segment or a custom field.
|Mode|| Why Choose This Option
|Import only missing definitions||Choose this if you only want to import elements that don’t already exist in your profile.||This will import definitions that are not present in the current profile and all referenced elements.||Your profile doesn’t have a TS (time-stamp) data type you’d like to add from HL7 v2.6.|
|Replace all definitions||Choose this if you need to replace all existing definitions with the imported definitions.||Replace existing elements with imported elements. This means that you’ll overwrite current definitions. The segment definition will change to the imported definition.||Your profile has an HD definition that would like to replace by the one from v2.6.|
|Blend definitions||Choose this if you need to import a definition from another profile, but also keep all definitions from both profiles.||This will import all selected and referenced definitions and will duplicated all elements that are different.||Your profile has a custom TS definition from one source system. A second source system uses a different definition. You need to code an interface for both definitions.|
