Logical Definition (CLD)



Expansion based on codesystem ObservationValue v3.0.0 (CodeSystem)

This value set contains 5 concepts.

1  _ObservationMeasureScoringhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationValueObservationMeasureScoring

Observation values used to indicate the type of scoring (e.g. proportion, ratio) used by a health quality measure.

2    COHORThttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationValuecohort measure scoring

A measure in which either short-term cross-section or long-term longitudinal analysis is performed over a group of subjects defined by a set of common properties or defining characteristics (e.g., Male smokers between the ages of 40 and 50 years, exposure to treatment, exposure duration).

2    CONTVARhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationValuecontinuous variable measure scoring

A measure score in which each individual value for the measure can fall anywhere along a continuous scale (e.g., mean time to thrombolytics which aggregates the time in minutes from a case presenting with chest pain to the time of administration of thrombolytics).

2    PROPORhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationValueproportion measure scoring

A score derived by dividing the number of cases that meet a criterion for quality (the numerator) by the number of eligible cases within a given time frame (the denominator) where the numerator cases are a subset of the denominator cases (e.g., percentage of eligible women with a mammogram performed in the last year).

2    RATIOhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationValueratio measure scoring

A score that may have a value of zero or greater that is derived by dividing a count of one type of data by a count of another type of data (e.g., the number of patients with central lines who develop infection divided by the number of central line days).

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
