Code Display Definition
error error The resource was created in error, and should not be treated as valid (note: in many cases, for various data integrity related reasons, the information cannot be removed from the record)
proposed proposed The resource describes an action or plan that is proposed, and not yet approved by the participants
planned planned The resource describes a course of action that is planned and agreed/approved, but at the time of recording was still future
draft draft The information in the resource is still being prepared and edited
requested requested A fulfiller has been asked to perform this action, but it has not yet occurred
received received The fulfiller has received the request, but not yet agreed to carry out the action
declined declined The fulfiller chose not to perform the action
accepted accepted The fulfiller has decided to perform the action, and plans are in train to do this in the future
arrived arrived The pre-conditions for the action are all fulfilled, and it is imminent
active active The resource describes information that is currently valid or a process that is presently occuring
suspended suspended The process described/requested in this resource has been halted for some reason
failed failed The process described/requested in the resource could not be completed, and no further action is planned
replaced replaced The information in this resource has been replaced by information in another resource
complete complete The process described/requested in the resource has been completed, and no further action is planned
inactive inactive The resource describes information that is no longer valid or a process that is stopped occurring
abandoned abandoned The process described/requested in the resource did not complete - usually due to some workflow error, and no further action is planned
unknown unknown Authoring system does not know the status
unconfirmed unconfirmed The information in this resource is not yet approved
confirmed confirmed The information in this resource is approved
resolved resolved The issue identified by this resource is no longer of concern
refuted refuted This information has been ruled out by testing and evaluation
differential differential Potentially true?
partial partial This information is still being assembled
busy-unavailable busy-unavailable not available at this time/location
free free Free for scheduling
on-target on-target Ready to act
ahead-of-target ahead-of-target Ahead of the planned timelines
behind-target behind-target
not-ready not-ready Behind the planned timelines

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Lvl A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - see Code System for further information
Source The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
Display The display (used in the display element of a Coding ). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
