This value set contains 3 concepts

Expansion based on Linkage Type v6.0.0-cibuild (CodeSystem)

  sourcehttp://hl7.org/fhir/linkage-typeSource of Truth

The resource represents the "source of truth" (from the perspective of this Linkage resource) for the underlying event/condition/etc.

  alternatehttp://hl7.org/fhir/linkage-typeAlternate Record

The resource represents an alternative view of the underlying event/condition/etc. The resource may still be actively maintained, even though it is not considered to be the source of truth.

  historicalhttp://hl7.org/fhir/linkage-typeHistorical/Obsolete Record

The resource represents an obsolete record of the underlying event/condition/etc. It is not expected to be actively maintained.

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
