Logical Definition (CLD)

This value set includes codes based on the following rules:

  • Include these codes as defined in http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-EntityNamePartQualifierR2
    CodeDisplayDefinition
    LSLegal statusFor organizations a suffix indicating the legal status, e.g., Inc., "Co.", "AG", "GmbH", "B.V." "S.A.", "Ltd." Etc.
    ACAcademicIndicates that a prefix like "Dr." or a suffix like "M.D." or "Ph.D." is an academic title.
    NBNobilityIn Europe and Asia, there are still people with nobility titles (aristocrats). German "von" is generally a nobility title, not a mere voorvoegsel. Others are "Earl of" or "His Majesty King of..." etc. Rarely used nowadays, but some systems do keep track of this.
    PRProfessionalPrimarily in the British Imperial culture people tend to have an abbreviation of their professional organization as part of their credential suffices
    HONHonorificAn honorific such as "The Right Honourable" or "Weledelgeleerde Heer".
    BRBirthA name that a person was given at birth or established as a consequence of adoption. NOTE: This is not used for temporary names assigned at birth such as 'Baby of Smith' – which is just a name with a use code of TEMP
    ADAcquiredA name part a person acquired. The name part may be acquired by adoption, or the person may have chosen to use the name part for some other reason. NOTE This differs from an other/psuedonym/alias in that an acquired name part is acquired on a formal basis rather than an informal one (e.g. registered as part of the official name)
    SPSpouseThe name assumed from the partner in a marital relationship. Usually the spouse‘s family name. No inference about gender may be made from the existence of spouse names
    MIDMiddle NameIndicates that the name part is a middle name. In general, the English "middle name" concept is all of the given names after the first. This qualifier may be used to explicitly indicate which given names are considered to be middle names. The middle name qualifier may also be used with family names. This is a Scandinavian use case, matching the concept of "mellomnavn"/"mellannamn". There are specific rules that indicate what names may be taken as a mellannamnin different Scandinavian countries
    CLCall meCallme is used to indicate which of the various name parts is used when interacting with the person
    INInitialIndicates that a name part is just an initial. Initials do not imply a trailing period since this would not work with non-Latin scripts. Initials may consist of more than one letter, e.g., "Ph." could stand for "Philippe" or "Th." for "Thomas"
  • Include these codes as defined in http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-EntityNamePartQualifier
    CodeDisplayDefinition
    VVVoorvoegselA Dutch "voorvoegsel" is something like "van" or "de" that might have indicated nobility in the past but no longer so. Similar prefixes exist in other languages such as German, Spanish, French or Portugese

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
