This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: Immunization Evaluation Status Codes (The value set to instantiate this attribute should be drawn from a terminologically robust code system that consists of or contains concepts to support describing the current status of the evaluation for vaccine administration event.)
  • ValueSet: MedicationAdministration Status Codes (MedicationAdministration Status Codes)

This code system defines the following codes:

in-progress In ProgressThe administration has started but has not yet completed.
not-done Not DoneThe administration was terminated prior to any impact on the subject (though preparatory actions may have been taken)
on-hold On HoldActions implied by the administration have been temporarily halted, but are expected to continue later. May also be called 'suspended'.
completed CompletedAll actions that are implied by the administration have occurred.
entered-in-error Entered in ErrorThe administration was entered in error and therefore nullified.
stopped StoppedActions implied by the administration have been permanently halted, before all of them occurred.
unknown UnknownThe authoring system does not know which of the status values currently applies for this request. Note: This concept is not to be used for 'other' - one of the listed statuses is presumed to apply, it's just not known which one.

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
