A resource that represents the data of a single raw artifact as digital content accessible in its native format. A Binary resource can contain any content, whether text, image, pdf, zip archive, etc.
There are situations where it is useful or required to handle pure binary content using the same framework as other resources. Typically, this is when the binary content is referred to from other FHIR Resources. For instance, DocumentReference A Binary resource can contain any content, whether
zip archive, etc.
The Binary resource does not convey context of the file. If the context (information such as author, procedure, technique, etc.) should be conveyed, Media or DocumentReference resources are appropriate. The Binary resource may be used to convey actual binary file content conveyed by those resources.
Binary resources are not constrained to any list of safe content types (content types without active elements such as scripting or executable code), and therefore can be of any content type and encoding. Therefore, extra care needs to be taken to validate the content of the Binary resource against malicious or malformed content. For more details see Security of Narrative, since the security issues are similar.
