A code that provides additional detail about the means or technique used to ascertain the observation.

Examples: Blood pressure measurement method: arterial puncture vs. sphygmomanometer (Riva-Rocci), sitting vs. supine position, etc.

OpenIssue: Description copied from Concept Domain of same name. Must be verified. Note that the Domain has a full discussion about use of the attribute and constraining that is not appropriate for the code system description. Needs to be improved.

Properties

This code system defines the following properties for its concepts

CodeURITypeDescription
SpecializesCodingThe child code is a more narrow version of the concept represented by the parent code. I.e. Every child concept is also a valid parent concept. Used to allow determination of subsumption. Must be transitive, irreflexive, antisymmetric.
GeneralizesCodingInverse of Specializes. Only included as a derived relationship.
internalIdhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/utg-concept-properties#v3-internal-idcodeThe internal identifier for the concept in the HL7 Access database repository.
statushttp://hl7.org/fhir/concept-properties#statuscodeDesignation of a concept's state. Normally is not populated unless the state is retired..

1_CommonClinicalObservationMethod common clinical observation

**Description:**Used in a patient care message to value simple clinical (non-lab) observation methods, such as found in SOAP (subjective, objective, assessment, plan) progress notes: subjective section (used for history from patient and other informants); objective section (used for physical exam, lab, and other common results), and assessment section (used for the clinicians assessment of the implications of subjective and objective sections).
