  • ValueSet: Task Codes (Codes indicating the type of action that is expected to be performed)

Codes indicating the type of action that is expected to be performed

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

CodeDisplayDefinition
approve Activate/approve the focal resourceTake what actions are needed to transition the focus resource from 'draft' to 'active' or 'in-progress', as appropriate for the resource type. This may involve additing additional content, approval, validation, etc.
fulfill Fulfill the focal requestAct to perform the actions defined in the focus request. This might result in a 'more assertive' request (order for a plan or proposal, filler order for a placer order), but is intend to eventually result in events. The degree of fulfillment requested might be limited by Task.restriction.
abort Mark the focal resource as no longer activeAbort, cancel or withdraw the focal resource, as appropriate for the type of resource.
replace Replace the focal resource with the input resourceReplace the focal resource with the specified input resource
change Change the focal resourceUpdate the focal resource of the owning system to reflect the content specified as the Task.focus
suspend Suspend the focal resourceTransition the focal resource from 'active' or 'in-progress' to 'suspended'
resume Re-activate the focal resourceTransition the focal resource from 'suspended' to 'active' or 'in-progress' as appropriate for the resource type.

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
