Concepts describing the urgency of a request carried in an order. Used in Version 2 messaging in timing/quantity; in older versions of the Standard was used in the TQ datatype, but in later versions it is used in the TQ1 segment (which replaced the TQ datatype which has been withdrawn). Many of the codes are widely recognized values used in healthcare settings in the english-speaking world.

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
