Code Display Definition
value Value The slices have different values in the nominated element.
exists Exists The slices are differentiated by the presence or absence of the nominated element.
pattern Pattern The slices have different values in the nominated element, as determined by testing them against the applicable ElementDefinition.pattern[x].
type Type The slices are differentiated by type of the nominated element.
profile Profile The slices are differentiated by conformance of the nominated element to a specified profile. Note that if the path specifies .resolve() then the profile is the target profile on the reference. In this case, validation by the possible profiles is required to differentiate the slices.

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
