Expansion based on TriggerType v4.6.0 (CodeSystem)

All codes in this table are from the system

0named-eventNamed EventThe trigger occurs in response to a specific named event, and no other information about the trigger is specified. Named events are completely pre-coordinated, and the formal semantics of the trigger are not provided.
0periodicPeriodicThe trigger occurs at a specific time or periodically as described by a timing or schedule. A periodic event cannot have any data elements, but may have a name assigned as a shorthand for the event.
0data-changedData ChangedThe trigger occurs whenever data of a particular type is changed in any way, either added, modified, or removed.
1  data-addedData AddedThe trigger occurs whenever data of a particular type is added.
1  data-modifiedData UpdatedThe trigger occurs whenever data of a particular type is modified.
1  data-removedData RemovedThe trigger occurs whenever data of a particular type is removed.
0data-accessedData AccessedThe trigger occurs whenever data of a particular type is accessed.
0data-access-endedData Access EndedThe trigger occurs whenever access to data of a particular type is completed.

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
