Expansion based on codesystem Naming System Identifier Type v6.0.0-cibuild (CodeSystem)

This value set contains 6 concepts.


An ISO object identifier; e.g.


A universally unique identifier of the form a5afddf4-e880-459b-876e-e4591b0acc11.


A uniform resource identifier (ideally a URL - uniform resource locator); e.g. http://unitsofmeasure.org.

  iri-stemhttp://hl7.org/fhir/namingsystem-identifier-typeIRI stem

An IRI string that can be prepended to the code to obtain a concept IRI for RDF applications. This should be a valid, absolute IRI as defined in RFC 3987. See rdf.html#iri-stem for details on how this value may be used.


A short string published by HL7 for use in the V2 family of standsrds to idenfify a code system in the V12 coded data types CWE, CNE, and CF. The code values are also published by HL7 at http://www.hl7.org/Special/committees/vocab/table_0396/index.cfm


Some other type of unique identifier; e.g. HL7-assigned reserved string such as LN for LOINC.

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
