This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • ValueSet: triggered Bytype (Codes providing the type of triggeredBy observation.)

Codes providing the triggeredBy type of observation.

This case-sensitive code system http://hl7.org/fhir/observation-triggeredbytype defines the following codes in a Is-A heirarchy:

reflex ReflexPerformance of one or more other tests depending on the results of the initial test. This may include collection of additional specimen. While a new ServiceRequest is not required to perform the additional test, where it is still needed (e.g., requesting another laboratory to perform the reflex test), the Observation.basedOn would reference the new ServiceRequest that requested the additional test to be performed as well as the original ServiceRequest to reflect the one that provided the authorization.btn btn
repeat Repeat (per policy)Performance of the same test again with the same parameters/settings/solution.btn btn
re-run Re-run (per policy)Performance of the same test but with different parameters/settings/solution.btn btn

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
