This value set is used in the following places:

Indicates the mechanism used to compare versions to determine which is more current.


This expansion generated 14 May 2024

Expansion based on codesystem Version Algorithm v6.0.0-cibuild (CodeSystem)

This value set contains 5 concepts.


Uses the semantic versioning scheme as defined in semver.org icon.


Versions are integers and ordered numerically


Simple alphabetic sort on a case-insensitive and accent-insensitive basis. (Sorting of different cases or accented versions of a character is indeterminate)


Versions are expressed as an ISO date/time syntax (including syntaxes with only portions of a date)


Sorted according to the algorithm defined here: naturalordersort.org icon

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
