Lvl Code Display Definition
1 not-started Not Started Care plan activity is planned but no action has yet been taken.
1 scheduled Scheduled Appointment or other booking has occurred but activity has not yet begun.
1 in-progress In Progress Care plan activity has been started but is not yet complete.
1 on-hold On Hold Care plan activity was started but has temporarily ceased with an expectation of resumption at a future time.
1 completed Completed Care plan activity has been completed (more or less) as planned.
1 cancelled Cancelled The planned care plan activity has been withdrawn.
2   stopped Stopped The planned care plan activity has been ended prior to completion after the activity was started.
1 unknown Unknown The current state of the care plan activity is not known. 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 one.
1 entered-in-error Entered in Error Care plan activity was entered in error and voided.

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
