Expansion based on MedicationRequest Status Codes v4.6.0 (CodeSystem)

All codes in this table are from the system

0activeActiveThe request is 'actionable', but not all actions that are implied by it have occurred yet.
0on-holdOn HoldActions implied by the request are to be temporarily halted. The request might or might not be resumed. May also be called 'suspended'.
0endedEndedThe request is no longer active and the subject should no longer be taking the medication.
1  stoppedStoppedActions implied by the request are to be permanently halted, before all of the administrations occurred. This should not be used if the original order was entered in error
1  completedCompletedAll actions that are implied by the request have occurred.
1  cancelledCancelledThe request has been withdrawn before any administrations have occurred
0entered-in-errorEntered in ErrorThe request was recorded against the wrong patient or for some reason should not have been recorded (e.g. wrong medication, wrong dose, etc). Some of the actions that are implied by the medication request may have occurred. For example, the medication may have been dispensed and the patient may have taken some of the medication.
0draftDraftThe request is not yet 'actionable', e.g. it is a work in progress, requires sign-off, verification or needs to be run through decision support process.
0unknownUnknownThe authoring/source system does not know which of the status values currently applies for this request. Note: This concept is not to be used for 'other' - one of the listed statuses is presumed to apply, but the authoring/source system does not know which.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - 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
