  alternatehttp://hl7.org/fhir/codesystem-altcode-kindAlternate Code

The code is an alternative code that can be used in any of the circumstances that the primary code can be used.


The code should no longer be used, but was used in the past.

  case-insensitivehttp://hl7.org/fhir/codesystem-altcode-kindCase Insensitive

The code is an alternative to be used when a case insensitive code is required (when the primary codes are case sensitive).

  case-sensitivehttp://hl7.org/fhir/codesystem-altcode-kindCase Sensitive

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - see Code System for further information
SourceThe source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe 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
