Base values for the order of the items in a list resource.


This value set is not used here; it may be used elsewhere (e.g. specifications and/or implementations that use this content)

Logical Definition (CLD)



Expansion based on codesystem List Order Codes v1.0.0 (CodeSystem)

This value set contains 8 concepts.

  userhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/list-orderSorted by User

The list was sorted by a user. The criteria the user used are not specified.

  systemhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/list-orderSorted by System

The list was sorted by the system. The criteria the user used are not specified; define additional codes to specify a particular order (or use other defined codes).

  event-datehttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/list-orderSorted by Event Date

The list is sorted by the data of the event. This can be used when the list has items which are dates with past or future events.

  entry-datehttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/list-orderSorted by Item Date

The list is sorted by the date the item was added to the list. Note that the date added to the list is not explicit in the list itself.

  priorityhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/list-orderSorted by Priority

The list is sorted by priority. The exact method in which priority has been determined is not specified.

  alphabetichttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/list-orderSorted Alphabetically

The list is sorted alphabetically by an unspecified property of the items in the list.

  categoryhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/list-orderSorted by Category

The list is sorted categorically by an unspecified property of the items in the list.

  patienthttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/list-orderSorted by Patient

The list is sorted by patient, with items for each patient grouped together.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
System The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The 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
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
