  valuehttp://hl7.org/fhir/discriminator-typeValue

The slices have different values in the nominated element, as determined by the applicable fixed value, pattern, or required ValueSet binding.

  existshttp://hl7.org/fhir/discriminator-typeExists

The slices are differentiated by the presence or absence of the nominated element. There SHALL be no more than two slices. The slices are differentiated by the fact that one must have a max of 0 and the other must have a min of 1 (or more). The order in which the slices are declared doesn't matter.

  patternhttp://hl7.org/fhir/discriminator-typePattern

The slices have different values in the nominated element, as determined by the applicable fixed value, pattern, or required ValueSet binding. This has the same meaning as 'value' and is deprecated.

deprecated
  typehttp://hl7.org/fhir/discriminator-typeType

The slices are differentiated by type of the nominated element.

  profilehttp://hl7.org/fhir/discriminator-typeProfile

The slices are differentiated by conformance of the nominated element to a specified profile. Note that if the path specifies .resolve() then the profile is the target profile on the reference. In this case, validation by the possible profiles is required to differentiate the slices.

  positionhttp://hl7.org/fhir/discriminator-typePosition

The slices are differentiated by their index. This is only possible if all but the last slice have min=max cardinality, and the (optional) last slice contains other undifferentiated elements.

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
