Codes for the main intent of a research study.

This case-sensitive code system http://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-prim-purp-type defines the following codes:

treatment TreatmentOne or more interventions are being evaluated for treating a disease, syndrome, or condition.btn btn
prevention PreventionOne or more interventions are being assessed for preventing the development of a specific disease or health condition.btn btn
diagnostic DiagnosticOne or more interventions are being evaluated for identifying a disease or health condition.btn btn
supportive-care Supportive CareOne or more interventions are evaluated for maximizing comfort, minimizing side effects, or mitigating against a decline in the participant's health or function.btn btn
screening ScreeningOne or more interventions are assessed or examined for identifying a condition, or risk factors for a condition, in people who are not yet known to have the condition or risk factor.btn btn
health-services-research Health Services ResearchOne or more interventions for evaluating the delivery, processes, management, organization, or financing of healthcare.btn btn
basic-science Basic ScienceOne or more interventions for examining the basic mechanism of action (for example, physiology or biomechanics of an intervention).btn btn
device-feasibility Device FeasibilityAn intervention of a device product is being evaluated to determine the feasibility of the product or to test a prototype device and not health outcomes. Such studies are conducted to confirm the design and operating specifications of a device before beginning a full clinical trial.btn btn
