This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: SynthesisType (Types of combining results from a body of evidence (eg. summary data meta-analysis).)
  • ValueSet: SynthesisType (Types of combining results from a body of evidence (eg. summary data meta-analysis).)

Types of combining results from a body of evidence (eg. summary data meta-analysis).

This code system http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/synthesis-type defines the following codes:

CodeDisplayDefinition
std-MA summary data meta-analysisA meta-analysis of the summary data of estimates from individual studies or data sets.
IPD-MA individual patient data meta-analysisA meta-analysis of the individual participant data from individual studies or data sets.
indirect-NMA indirect network meta-analysisAn indirect meta-analysis derived from 2 or more direct comparisons in a network meta-analysis.
combined-NMA combined direct plus indirect network meta-analysisAn composite meta-analysis derived from direct comparisons and indirect comparisons in a network meta-analysis.
range range of resultsA range of results across a body of evidence.
classification classifcation of resultsAn approach describing a body of evidence by categorically classifying individual studies (eg 3 studies showed beneft and 2 studied found no effect).
