This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: DefinitionStatus icon (Codes identifying the lifecycle stage of a definition.)
  • ValueSet: DefinitionStatus (Codes identifying the lifecycle stage of a definition.)

Codes identifying the lifecycle stage of a definition.

This code system http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/definition-status defines the following codes:

active ActiveThe definition is considered ready for use.btn btn
withdrawn WithdrawnThe definition should no longer be used.btn btn
unknown UnknownThe authoring/source system does not know which of the status values currently applies for this resource. 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.btn 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
DefinitionAn explanation of the meaning of the concept
