This value set contains 17 concepts.

  overall-studyhttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusOverall study

Used for documenting the start and end of the overall study, distinct from progress states.


Study is opened for accrual.

  active-but-not-recruitinghttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusActive, not recruiting

The study is ongoing, and participants are receiving an intervention or being examined, but potential participants are not currently being recruited or enrolled.

  administratively-completedhttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusAdministratively Completed

Study is completed prematurely and will not resume; patients are no longer examined nor treated.


Protocol is approved by the review board.

  closed-to-accrualhttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusClosed to Accrual

Study is closed for accrual; patients can be examined and treated.

  closed-to-accrual-and-interventionhttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusClosed to Accrual and Intervention

Study is closed to accrual and intervention, i.e. the study is closed to enrollment, all study subjects have completed treatment or intervention but are still being followed according to the primary objective of the study.


The study closed according to the study plan. There will be no further treatments, interventions or data collection.


Protocol was disapproved by the review board.

  enrolling-by-invitationhttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusEnrolling by invitation

The study is selecting its participants from a population, or group of people, decided on by the researchers in advance. These studies are not open to everyone who meets the eligibility criteria but only to people in that particular population, who are specifically invited to participate.

  in-reviewhttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusIn Review

Protocol is submitted to the review board for approval.

  not-yet-recruitinghttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusNot yet recruiting

The study has not started recruiting participants.


The study is currently recruiting participants.

  temporarily-closed-to-accrualhttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusTemporarily Closed to Accrual

Study is temporarily closed for accrual; can be potentially resumed in the future; patients can be examined and treated.

  temporarily-closed-to-accrual-and-interventionhttp://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-statusTemporarily Closed to Accrual and Intervention

Study is temporarily closed for accrual and intervention and potentially can be resumed in the future.


The study has stopped early and will not start again. Participants are no longer being examined or treated.


Protocol was withdrawn by the lead organization.

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
DefinitionAn explanation of the meaning of the concept
