This is a code system defined by the FHIR project.
The extent of the content of the code system (the concepts and codes it defines) are represented in a code system resource.
|Committee:||Vocabulary Work Group|
|Source Resource||XML / JSON|
This Code system is used in the following value sets:
|not-present||Not Present||None of the concepts defined by the code system are included in the code system resource.|
|example||Example||A few representative concepts are included in the code system resource. There is no useful intent in the subset choice and there's no process to make it workable: it's not intended to be workable.|
|fragment||Fragment||A subset of the code system concepts are included in the code system resource. This is a curated subset released for a specific purpose under the governance of the code system steward, and that the intent, bounds and consequences of the fragmentation are clearly defined in the fragment or the code system documentation. Fragments are also known as partitions.|
|complete||Complete||All the concepts defined by the code system are included in the code system resource.|
|supplement||Supplement||The resource doesn't define any new concepts; it just provides additional designations and properties to another code system.|
See the full registry of code systems defined as part of FHIR.
Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:
|Level||A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. 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|
