This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: Measure Aggregate Method (Aggregation method for a measure (e.g. sum, average, median, minimum, maximum, count))

This code system http://hl7.org/fhir/CodeSystem/measure-aggregate-method defines the following codes:

CodeDisplayDefinition
sum SumThe measure score is determined by adding together the observations derived from the measure population.
average AverageThe measure score is determined by taking the average of the observations derived from the measure population.
median MedianThe measure score is determined by taking the median of the observations derived from the measure population.
minimum MinimumThe measure score is determined by taking the minimum of the observations derived from the measure population.
maximum MaximumThe measure score is determined by taking the maximum of the observations derived from the measure population.
count CountThe measure score is determined as the number of observations derived from the measure population.
