This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: FilterOperator (The kind of operation to perform as a part of a property based filter.)
  • ValueSet: FilterOperator (The kind of operation to perform as a part of a property based filter.)

The kind of operation to perform as a part of a property based filter.

This code system http://hl7.org/fhir/filter-operator defines the following codes:

CodeDisplayDefinitionComments
= EqualsThe specified property of the code equals the provided value.
is-a Is A (by subsumption)Includes all concept ids that have a transitive is-a relationship with the concept Id provided as the value, including the provided concept itself (include descendant codes and self).The definition of is-a is that all the properties of the value are true for the specified property of the code, which means that a code has an is-a relationship with itself. To exclude the root code, use descendent-of
descendent-of Descendent Of (by subsumption)Includes all concept ids that have a transitive is-a relationship with the concept Id provided as the value, excluding the provided concept itself i.e. include descendant codes only).The definition of is-a is that all the properties of the value are true for the specified property of the code. Spelling note: "descendant" is a more correct spelling, but the spelling "descendent" is maintained in the code for backwards compatibility reasons
is-not-a Not (Is A) (by subsumption)The specified property of the code does not have an is-a relationship with the provided value.
regex Regular ExpressionThe specified property of the code matches the regex specified in the provided value.
in In SetThe specified property of the code is in the set of codes or concepts specified in the provided value (comma separated list).
not-in Not in SetThe specified property of the code is not in the set of codes or concepts specified in the provided value (comma separated list).
generalizes Generalizes (by Subsumption)Includes all concept ids that have a transitive is-a relationship from the concept Id provided as the value, including the provided concept itself (i.e. include ancestor codes and self).The definition of is-a is that all the properties of the value are true for the specified property of the code, which means that a code has an is-a relationship with itself. To exclude the root code, add it explicitly to as an exclude
exists ExistsThe specified property of the code has at least one value (if the specified value is true; if the specified value is false, then matches when the specified property of the code has no values).
