This is a code system defined by the FHIR project.
Codes providing the status of an observation.
|Committee:||Clinical Decision Support Work Group|
|Source Resource||XML / JSON|
This Code system is used in the following value sets:
|1||registered||Registered||The existence of the observation is registered, but there is no result yet available.|
|1||preliminary||Preliminary||This is an initial or interim observation: data may be incomplete or unverified.|
|1||final||Final||The observation is complete and there are no further actions needed. Additional information such "released", "signed", etc would be represented using [Provenance](provenance.html) which provides not only the act but also the actors and dates and other related data. These act states would be associated with an observation status of `preliminary` until they are all completed and then a status of `final` would be applied.|
|1||amended||Amended||Subsequent to being Final, the observation has been modified subsequent. This includes updates/new information and corrections.|
|2||corrected||Corrected||Subsequent to being Final, the observation has been modified to correct an error in the test result.|
|1||cancelled||Cancelled||The observation is unavailable because the measurement was not started or not completed (also sometimes called "aborted").|
|1||entered-in-error||Entered in Error||The observation has been withdrawn following previous final release. This electronic record should never have existed, though it is possible that real-world decisions were based on it. (If real-world activity has occurred, the status should be "cancelled" rather than "entered-in-error".).|
|1||unknown||Unknown||The authoring/source system does not know which of the status values currently applies for this observation. Note: This concept is not to be used for "other" - one of the listed statuses is presumed to apply, but the authoring/source system does not know which.|

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|
