This is a code system defined by the FHIR project.

Name:Canonical Status Codes for FHIR Resources

The master set of status codes used throughout FHIR. All status codes are mapped to one of these codes.

This Code system is used in the following value sets:

This code system defines the following codes:

error errorThe resource was created in error, and should not be treated as valid (note: in many cases, for various data integrity related reasons, the information cannot be removed from the record)
proposed proposedThe resource describes an action or plan that is proposed, and not yet approved by the participants
planned plannedThe resource describes a course of action that is planned and agreed/approved, but at the time of recording was still future
draft draftThe information in the resource is still being prepared and edited
requested requestedA fulfiller has been asked to perform this action, but it has not yet occurred
received receivedThe fulfiller has received the request, but not yet agreed to carry out the action
declined declinedThe fulfiller chose not to perform the action
accepted acceptedThe fulfiller has decided to perform the action, and plans are in train to do this in the future
arrived arrivedThe pre-conditions for the action are all fulfilled, and it is imminent
active activeThe resource describes information that is currently valid or a process that is presently occuring
suspended suspendedThe process described/requested in this resource has been halted for some reason
failed failedThe process described/requested in the resource could not be completed, and no further action is planned
replaced replacedThe information in this resource has been replaced by information in another resource
complete completeThe process described/requested in the resource has been completed, and no further action is planned
inactive inactiveThe resource describes information that is no longer valid or a process that is stopped occurring
abandoned abandonedThe process described/requested in the resource did not complete - usually due to some workflow error, and no further action is planned
unknown unknownAuthoring system does not know the status
unconfirmed unconfirmedThe information in this resource is not yet approved
confirmed confirmedThe information in this resource is approved
resolved resolvedThe issue identified by this resource is no longer of concern
refuted refutedThis information has been ruled out by testing and evaluation
differential differentialPotentially true?
partial partialThis information is still being assembled
busy-unavailable busy-unavailablenot available at this time/location
free freeFree for scheduling
on-target on-targetReady to act
ahead-of-target ahead-of-targetAhead of the planned timelines
behind-target behind-targetBehind the planned timelines
not-ready not-readyNot ready to act
transduc-discon transduc-disconThe device transducer is disconnected

LevelA 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
