Normative Candidate Note: This page is candidate normative content for R4 in the Observation Package. Once normative, it will lose it's Maturity Level, and breaking changes will no longer be made.

This is a value set defined by the FHIR project.

LvlCodeDisplayDefinitionCanonical Status
0registeredRegisteredThe existence of the observation is registered, but there is no result yet available.~received
0preliminaryPreliminaryThis is an initial or interim observation: data may be incomplete or unverified.~draft
0finalFinalThe observation is complete and there are no further actions needed. Additional information such "released", "signed", etc would be represented using [Provenance](provenance.html) which provides not only the act but also the actors and dates and other related data. These act states would be associated with an observation status of `preliminary` until they are all completed and then a status of `final` would be applied.~complete
0amendedAmendedSubsequent to being Final, the observation has been modified subsequent. This includes updates/new information and corrections.
1  correctedCorrectedSubsequent to being Final, the observation has been modified to correct an error in the test result.
0cancelledCancelledThe observation is unavailable because the measurement was not started or not completed (also sometimes called "aborted").~abandoned
0entered-in-errorEntered in ErrorThe observation has been withdrawn following previous final release. This electronic record should never have existed, though it is possible that real-world decisions were based on it. (If real-world activity has occurred, the status should be "cancelled" rather than "entered-in-error".).~error
0unknownUnknownThe authoring 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 system does not know which.~unknown

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
