CodeDisplayDefinitionCopy
required RequiredTo be conformant, the concept in this element SHALL be from the specified value set.btn btn
extensible ExtensibleTo be conformant, the concept in this element SHALL be from the specified value set if any of the codes within the value set can apply to the concept being communicated. If the value set does not cover the concept (based on human review), alternate codings (or, data type allowing, text) may be included instead.btn btn
preferred PreferredInstances are encouraged to draw from the specified codes for interoperability purposes but are not required to do so to be considered conformant.btn btn
example ExampleInstances are not expected or even encouraged to draw from the specified value set. The value set merely provides examples of the types of concepts intended to be included.btn btn
