Additional Binding Purpose

This case-sensitive code system http://hl7.org/fhir/CodeSystem/additional-binding-purpose defines the following codes:

maximum Maximum BindingA required binding, for use when the binding strength is 'extensible' or 'preferred'btn btn
minimum Minimum BindingThe minimum allowable value set - any conformant system SHALL support all these codesbtn btn
required Required BindingThis value set is used as a required binding (in addition to the base binding (not a replacement), usually in a particular usage context)btn btn
extensible Conformance BindingThis value set is used as an extensible binding (in addition to the base binding (not a replacement), usually in a particular usage context)btn btn
candidate Candidate BindingThis value set is a candidate to substitute for the overall conformance value set in some situations; usually these are defined in the documentationbtn btn
current Current BindingNew records are required to use this value set, but legacy records may use other codes. The definition of 'new record' is difficult, since systems often create new records based on pre-existing data. Usually 'current' bindings are mandated by an external authority that makes clear rules around thisbtn btn
preferred Preferred BindingThis is the value set that is preferred in a given context (documentation should explain why)btn btn
ui UI Suggested BindingThis value set is provided for user look up in a given context. Typically, these valuesets only include a subset of codes relevant for input in a contextbtn btn
starter Starter BindingThis value set is a good set of codes to start with when designing your systembtn btn
component Component BindingThis value set is a component of the base value set. Usually this is called out so that documentation can be written about a portion of the value setbtn btn

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LevelA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. 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
