This value set is used in the following places:

All fhir data types

  • Include these codes as defined in http://hl7.org/fhir/fhir-types
    AccountAccountA financial tool for tracking value accrued for a particular purpose. In the healthcare field, used to track charges for a patient, cost centers, etc.
    ActivityDefinitionActivityDefinitionThis resource allows for the definition of some activity to be performed, independent of a particular patient, practitioner, or other performance context.
    ActorDefinitionActorDefinitionThe ActorDefinition resource is used to describe an actor - a human or an application that plays a role in data exchange, and that may have obligations associated with the role the actor plays.
    AdministrableProductDefinitionAdministrableProductDefinitionA medicinal product in the final form which is suitable for administering to a patient (after any mixing of multiple components, dissolution etc. has been performed).
    AdverseEventAdverseEventAn event (i.e. any change to current patient status) that may be related to unintended effects on a patient or research participant. The unintended effects may require additional monitoring, treatment, hospitalization, or may result in death. The AdverseEvent resource also extends to potential or avoided events that could have had such effects. There are two major domains where the AdverseEvent resource is expected to be used. One is in clinical care reported adverse events and the other is in reporting adverse events in clinical research trial management. Adverse events can be reported by healthcare providers, patients, caregivers or by medical products manufacturers. Given the differences between these two concepts, we recommend consulting the domain specific implementation guides when implementing the AdverseEvent Resource. The implementation guides include specific extensions, value sets and constraints.
    AllergyIntoleranceAllergyIntoleranceRisk of harmful or undesirable, physiological response which is unique to an individual and associated with exposure to a substance.
    AppointmentAppointmentA booking of a healthcare event among patient(s), practitioner(s), related person(s) and/or device(s) for a specific date/time. This may result in one or more Encounter(s).

Assessments are often 1:1 with a clinical consultation / encounter, but this varies greatly depending on the clinical workflow. This resource is called "ClinicalImpression" rather than "ClinicalAssessment" to avoid confusion with the recording of assessment tools such as Apgar score.
    ClinicalUseDefinitionClinicalUseDefinitionA single issue - either an indication, contraindication, interaction or an undesirable effect for a medicinal product, medication, device or procedure.
    CodeSystemCodeSystemThe CodeSystem resource is used to declare the existence of and describe a code system or code system supplement and its key properties, and optionally define a part or all of its content.

The report also includes non-clinical context such as batch analysis and stability reporting of products and substances.
    DocumentReferenceDocumentReferenceA reference to a document of any kind for any purpose. While the term “document” implies a more narrow focus, for this resource this "document" encompasses *any* serialized object with a mime-type, it includes formal patient-centric documents (CDA), clinical notes, scanned paper, non-patient specific documents like policy text, as well as a photo, video, or audio recording acquired or used in healthcare. The DocumentReference resource provides metadata about the document so that the document can be discovered and managed.

    MedicationAdministrationMedicationAdministrationDescribes the event of a patient consuming or otherwise being administered a medication. This may be as simple as swallowing a tablet or it may be a long running infusion. Related resources tie this event to the authorizing prescription, and the specific encounter between patient and health care practitioner. This event can also be used to record waste using a status of not-done and the appropriate statusReason.
    MedicationDispenseMedicationDispenseIndicates that a medication product is to be or has been dispensed for a named person/patient. This includes a description of the medication product (supply) provided and the instructions for administering the medication.

    MedicationKnowledgeMedicationKnowledgeInformation about a medication that is used to support knowledge.
    MedicationRequestMedicationRequestAn order or request for both supply of the medication and the instructions for administration of the medication to a patient. The resource is called "MedicationRequest" rather than "MedicationPrescription" or "MedicationOrder" to generalize the use across inpatient and outpatient settings, including care plans, etc., and to harmonize with workflow patterns.
    MedicationUsageMedicationUsageA record of a medication that is being consumed by a patient. A MedicationUsage may indicate that the patient may be taking the medication now or has taken the medication in the past or will be taking the medication in the future. The source of this information can be the patient, significant other (such as a family member or spouse), or a clinician. A common scenario where this information is captured is during the history taking process during a patient visit or stay. The medication information may come from sources such as the patient's memory, from a prescription bottle, or from a list of medications the patient, clinician or other party maintains. The primary difference between a medicationusage and a medicationadministration is that the medication administration has complete administration information and is based on actual administration information from the person who administered the medication. A medicationusage is often, if not always, less specific. There is no required date/time when the medication was administered, in fact we only know that a source has reported the patient is taking this medication, where details such as time, quantity, or rate or even medication product may be incomplete or missing or less precise. As stated earlier, the Medication Usage information may come from the patient's memory, from a prescription bottle or from a list of medications the patient, clinician or other party maintains. Medication administration is more formal and is not missing detailed information.

    NutritionIntakeNutritionIntakeA record of food or fluid that is being consumed by a patient. A NutritionIntake may indicate that the patient may be consuming the food or fluid now or has consumed the food or fluid in the past. The source of this information can be the patient, significant other (such as a family member or spouse), or a clinician. A common scenario where this information is captured is during the history taking process during a patient visit or stay or through an app that tracks food or fluids consumed. The consumption information may come from sources such as the patient's memory, from a nutrition label, or from a clinician documenting observed intake.
    NutritionOrderNutritionOrderA request to supply a diet, formula feeding (enteral) or oral nutritional supplement to a patient/resident.

    PersonPersonDemographics and administrative information about a person independent of a specific health-related context.
    PlanDefinitionPlanDefinitionThis resource allows for the definition of various types of plans as a sharable, consumable, and executable artifact. The resource is general enough to support the description of a broad range of clinical and non-clinical artifacts such as clinical decision support rules, order sets, protocols, and drug quality specifications.
    PractitionerPractitionerA person who is directly or indirectly involved in the provisioning of healthcare or related services.
    PractitionerRolePractitionerRoleA specific set of Roles/Locations/specialties/services that a practitioner may perform, or has performed at an organization during a period of time.

For example, this can be a physical intervention on a patient like an operation, or less invasive like long term services, counseling, or hypnotherapy. This can be a quality or safety inspection for a location, organization, or device. This can be an accreditation procedure on a practitioner for licensing.
    ProvenanceProvenanceProvenance of a resource is a record that describes entities and processes involved in producing and delivering or otherwise influencing that resource. Provenance provides a critical foundation for assessing authenticity, enabling trust, and allowing reproducibility. Provenance assertions are a form of contextual metadata and can themselves become important records with their own provenance. Provenance statement indicates clinical significance in terms of confidence in authenticity, reliability, and trustworthiness, integrity, and stage in lifecycle (e.g. Document Completion - has the artifact been legally authenticated), all of which may impact security, privacy, and trust policies.
    QuestionnaireQuestionnaireA structured set of questions intended to guide the collection of answers from end-users. Questionnaires provide detailed control over order, presentation, phraseology and grouping to allow coherent, consistent data collection.
    QuestionnaireResponseQuestionnaireResponseA structured set of questions and their answers. The questions are ordered and grouped into coherent subsets, corresponding to the structure of the grouping of the questionnaire being responded to.
