This code system (http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-EntityClass) is defined as part of HL7 v3.

Summary

Defining URL:http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-EntityClass
Version:2019-07-31
Name:v3.EntityClass
Title:v3 Code System EntityClass
Definition:

Classifies the Entity class and all of its subclasses. The terminology is hierarchical. At the top is this HL7-defined domain of high-level categories (such as represented by the Entity subclasses). Each of these terms must be harmonized and is specializable. The value sets beneath are drawn from multiple, frequently external, domains that reflect much more fine-grained typing.

This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: V3 Value SetEntityClassDevice ( A subtype of ManufacturedMaterial used in an activity, without being substantially changed through that activity. The kind of device is identified by the code attribute inherited from Entity. Usage: This includes durable (reusable) medical equipment as well as disposable equipment.)
  • ValueSet: V3 Value SetEntityClassManufacturedMaterial ( Corresponds to the ManufacturedMaterial class)
  • ValueSet: v3 Code System EntityClass ( Classifies the Entity class and all of its subclasses. The terminology is hierarchical. At the top is this HL7-defined domain of high-level categories (such as represented by the Entity subclasses). Each of these terms must be harmonized and is specializable.

  • ValueSet: V3 Value SetEntityClassLivingSubject ( Anything that essentially has the property of life, independent of current state (a dead human corpse is still essentially a living subject.))
  • ValueSet: V3 Value SetEntityClassOrganization ( A social or legal structure formed by human beings.)
  • ValueSet: V3 Value SetEntityClassPlace ( A physicial place or site with its containing structure. May be natural or man-made. The geographic position of a place may or may not be constant.)
  • ValueSet: V3 Value SetEntityClassRoot ( Corresponds to the Entity class)
