This is a code system defined by the FHIR project.

Summary

Defining URL:http://hl7.org/fhir/concept-subsumption-outcome
Version:3.6.0
Name:ConceptSubsumptionOutcome
Title:ConceptSubsumptionOutcome
Definition:

The subsumption relationship between code/Coding "A" and code/Coding "B". There are 4 possible codes to be returned: equivalent, subsumes, subsumed-by, and not-subsumed. If the server is unable to determine the relationship between the codes/Codings, then it returns an error (i.e. an OperationOutcome).

This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: ConceptSubsumptionOutcome (The subsumption relationship between code/Coding "A" and code/Coding "B". There are 4 possible codes to be returned: equivalent, subsumes, subsumed-by, and not-subsumed.

This code system http://hl7.org/fhir/concept-subsumption-outcome defines the following codes:

CodeDisplayDefinition
equivalent EquivalentThe two concepts are equivalent (have the same properties).
subsumes SubsumesCoding/code "A" subsumes Coding/code "B" (e.g. B has all the properties A has, and some of it's own).
subsumed-by Subsumed-ByCoding/code "A" is subsumed by Coding/code "B" (e.g. A has all the properties B has, and some of it's own).
not-subsumed Not-SubsumedCoding/code "A" and Coding/code "B" are disjoint (e.g. each has propeties that the other doesn't have).

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
