Example use codes for the List resource - typical kinds of use.

This code system http://hl7.org/fhir/list-example-use-codes http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/list-example-use-codes defines the following codes:
Code Display Definition
alerts Alerts A list of alerts for the patient.
adverserxns Adverse Reactions A list of part adverse reactions.

medications Medication List A list of medication statements for the patient.
problems Problem List A list of problems that the patient is known of have (or have had in the past).

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. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies 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
