This Code system is used in the following value sets:

Codes providing the status of an observation.

This code system http://hl7.org/fhir/observation-status defines the following codes:

LvlCodeDisplayDefinition
1registered RegisteredThe existence of the observation is registered, but there is no result yet available.
1preliminary PreliminaryThis is an initial or interim observation: data may be incomplete or unverified.
1final FinalThe observation is complete and there are no further actions needed. Additional information such "released", "signed", etc would be represented using [Provenance](provenance.html) which provides not only the act but also the actors and dates and other related data. These act states would be associated with an observation status of `preliminary` until they are all completed and then a status of `final` would be applied.
1amended AmendedSubsequent to being Final, the observation has been modified subsequent. This includes updates/new information and corrections.
2  corrected CorrectedSubsequent to being Final, the observation has been modified to correct an error in the test result.
1cancelled CancelledThe observation is unavailable because the measurement was not started or not completed (also sometimes called "aborted").
1entered-in-error Entered in ErrorThe observation has been withdrawn following previous final release. This electronic record should never have existed, though it is possible that real-world decisions were based on it. (If real-world activity has occurred, the status should be "cancelled" rather than "entered-in-error".).
1unknown UnknownThe authoring/source system does not know which of the status values currently applies for this observation. Note: This concept is not to be used for "other" - one of the listed statuses is presumed to apply, but the authoring/source system does not know which.

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. See Code System for further information.

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
