This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: RelatedArtifactType (The type of relationship to the related artifact.)
  • ValueSet: RelatedArtifactType (The type of relationship to the related artifact.)

The type of relationship to the related artifact.

This code system defines the following codes:
Code Display Definition
documentation Documentation Additional documentation for the knowledge resource. This would include additional instructions on usage as well as additional information on clinical context or appropriateness.
justification Justification A summary of the justification for the knowledge resource including supporting evidence, relevant guidelines, or other clinically important information. This information is intended to provide a way to make the justification for the knowledge resource available to the consumer of interventions or results produced by the knowledge resource.
citation Citation Bibliographic citation for papers, references, or other relevant material for the knowledge resource. This is intended to allow for citation of related material, but that was not necessarily specifically prepared in connection with this knowledge resource.
predecessor Predecessor The previous version of the knowledge resource.
successor Successor The next version of the knowledge resource.
derived-from Derived From The knowledge resource is derived from the related artifact. This is intended to capture the relationship in which a particular knowledge resource is based on the content of another artifact, but is modified to capture either a different set of overall requirements, or a more specific set of requirements such as those involved in a particular institution or clinical setting.
depends-on Depends On The knowledge resource depends on the given related artifact.
composed-of Composed Of The knowledge resource is composed of the given related artifact.

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
