This value set contains 4 concepts.


The patient resource containing this link must no longer be used. The link points forward to another patient resource that must be used in lieu of the patient resource that contains this link.


The patient resource containing this link is the current active patient record. The link points back to an inactive patient resource that has been merged into this resource, and should be consulted to retrieve additional referenced information.


The patient resource containing this link is in use and valid but not considered the main source of information about a patient. The link points forward to another patient resource that should be consulted to retrieve additional patient information.

The patient resource containing this link is in use and valid, but points to another Patient or RelatedPerson resource that is known to contain data about the same person. Data in this resource might overlap or contradict information found in the other Patient/RelatedPerson resource. This link does not indicate any relative importance of the resources concerned, and both should be regarded as equally valid.

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
