This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: SecurityRoleType (This example FHIR value set is comprised of example Actor Type codes, which can be used to value FHIR agents, actors, and other role elements such as those specified in financial transactions. The FHIR Actor value set is based on DICOM Audit Message, C402; ASTM Standard, E1762-95 [2013]; selected codes and derived actor roles from HL7 RoleClass OID 2.16.840.1.113883.5.110; HL7 Role Code 2.16.840.1.113883.5.111, including AgentRoleType; HL7 ParticipationType OID: 2.16.840.1.113883.5.90; and HL7 ParticipationFunction codes OID: 2.16.840.1.113883.5.88. This value set includes, by reference, role codes from external code systems: NUCC Health Care Provider Taxonomy OID: 2.16.840.1.113883.6.101; North American Industry Classification System [NAICS]OID: 2.16.840.1.113883.6.85; IndustryClassificationSystem 2.16.840.1.113883.1.11.16039; and US Census Occupation Code OID: 2.16.840.1.113883.6.243 for relevant recipient or custodian codes not included in this value set. If no source is indicated in the definition comments, then these are example FHIR codes. It can be extended with appropriate roles described by SNOMED as well as those described in the HL7 Role Based Access Control Catalog and the HL7 Healthcare (Security and Privacy) Access Control Catalog. In Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), permissions are operations on an object that a user wishes to access. Permissions are grouped into roles. A role characterizes the functions a user is allowed to perform. Roles are assigned to users. If the user's role has the appropriate permissions to access an object, then that user is granted access to the object. FHIR readily enables RBAC, as FHIR Resources are object types and the CRUDE events (the FHIR equivalent to permissions in the RBAC scheme) are operations on those objects. In Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC), a user requests to perform operations on objects. That user's access request is granted or denied based on a set of access control policies that are specified in terms of attributes and conditions. FHIR readily enables ABAC, as instances of a Resource in FHIR (again, Resources are object types) can have attributes associated with them. These attributes include security tags, environment conditions, and a host of user and object characteristics, which are the same attributes as those used in ABAC. Attributes help define the access control policies that determine the operations a user may perform on a Resource (in FHIR) or object (in ABAC). For example, a tag (or attribute) may specify that the identified Resource (object) is not to be further disclosed without explicit consent from the patient.)
  • ValueSet: Parent Relationship Codes (The value set includes the v3 RoleCode PRN (parent), TWIN (twin) and all of their specializations. It covers the relationships needed to establish genetic pedigree relationships between family members.)

  • ValueSet: Focal Subject Codes (Example value set composed from SNOMED CT and HL7 V3 codes for observation targets such as donor, fetus or spouse. As use cases are discovered, more values may be added.)
  • ValueSet: ParticipationRoleType (This FHIR value set is comprised of Actor participation Type codes, which can be used to value FHIR agents, actors, and other role elements. The FHIR Actor participation type value set is based on DICOM Audit Message, C402; ASTM Standard, E1762-95 [2013]; selected codes and derived actor roles from HL7 RoleClass OID 2.16.840.1.113883.5.110; HL7 Role Code 2.16.840.1.113883.5.111, including AgentRoleType; HL7 ParticipationType OID: 2.16.840.1.113883.5.90; and HL7 ParticipationFunction codes OID: 2.16.840.1.113883.5.88.

1(_PolicyOrProgramCoverageRoleType) Abstract  Description: A role recognized through the eligibility of an identified party for benefits covered under an insurance policy or a program based on meeting eligibility criteria.
Eligibility as a covered party may be conditioned on the party meeting criteria to qualify for coverage under a policy or program, which may be mandated by law. These criteria may be:
The sole basis for coverage, e.g., being differently abled may qualify a person for disability coverage
May more fully qualify a covered party role e.g, being differently abled may qualify an adult child as a dependent
May impact the level of coverage for a covered party under a policy or program, e.g., being differently abled may qualify a program eligible for additional benefits.
Discussion: The Abstract Value Set "CoverageRoleType", which was developed for use in the Canadian realm "pre-coordinate" coverage roles with other roles that a covered party must play in order to be eligible for coverage, e.g., "handicapped dependent". These role.codes may only be used with COVPTY to avoid overlapping concepts that would result from using them to specify the specializations of COVPTY, e.g., the role.class DEPEN should not be used with the role.code family dependent because that relationship has overlapping concepts due to the role.code precoodination and is conveyed in FICO with the personal relationship role that has a PART role link to the covered party role. For the same reasons, the role.class DEPEN should not be used with the role.code HANDIC (handicapped dependent); the role.code DIFFABLE (differently abled) should be used instead.
In summary, the coded concepts in the Abstract Value Set "CoveredPartyRoleType" can be "post-coordinated" with the "RoleClassCoveredParty" Abstract Value Set. Decoupling these concepts is intended to support an expansive range of covered party concepts and their semantic comparability.

2  (_CoveredPartyRoleType) Abstract  A role recognized through the eligibility of an identified living subject for benefits covered under an insurance policy or a program. Eligibility as a covered party may be conditioned on a relationship with (1) the policy holder such as the policy holder who is covered as an individual under a poliy or as a party sponsored for coverage by the policy holder.
Example:An employee as a subscriber; or (2) on being scoped another covered party such as the subscriber, as in the case of a dependent.
Discussion: The Abstract Value Set "CoverageRoleType", which was developed for use in the Canadian realm "pre-coordinate" coverage roles with other roles that a covered party must play in order to be eligible for coverage, e.g., "handicapped dependent". Other codes in the Abstract Value Set CoveredPartyRoleType domain can be "post-coordinated" with the EligiblePartyRoleType codes to denote comparable concepts. Decoupling the concepts is intended to support a wider range of concepts and semantic comparability of coded concepts.
