This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • BundleType (Indicates the purpose of a bundle - how it was intended to be used.)

Indicates the purpose of a bundle - how it was intended to be used.

This code system http://hl7.org/fhir/bundle-type defines the following codes:

CodeDisplayDefinition
document DocumentThe bundle is a document. The first resource is a Composition.
message MessageThe bundle is a message. The first resource is a MessageHeader.
transaction TransactionThe bundle is a transaction - intended to be processed by a server as an atomic commit.
transaction-response Transaction ResponseThe bundle is a transaction response. Because the response is a transaction response, the transaction has succeeded, and all responses are error free.
batch BatchThe bundle is a transaction - intended to be processed by a server as a group of actions.
batch-response Batch ResponseThe bundle is a batch response. Note that as a batch, some responses may indicate failure and others success.
history History ListThe bundle is a list of resources from a history interaction on a server.
searchset Search ResultsThe bundle is a list of resources returned as a result of a search/query interaction, operation, or message.
collection CollectionThe bundle is a set of resources collected into a single package for ease of distribution.

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. See Code System for further information.
SourceThe source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe 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
