Expansion based on UDIEntryType v4.6.0 (CodeSystem)

All codes in this table are from the system

barcodeBarcodea barcodescanner captured the data from the device label.
rfidRFIDAn RFID chip reader captured the data from the device label.
manualManualThe data was read from the label by a person and manually entered. (e.g. via a keyboard).
cardCardThe data originated from a patient's implant card and was read by an operator.
self-reportedSelf ReportedThe data originated from a patient source and was not directly scanned or read from a label or card.
electronic-transmissionElectronic TransmissionThe UDI information was received electronically from the device through a communication protocol, such as the IEEE 11073 20601 version 4 exchange protocol over Bluetooth or USB.
unknownUnknownThe method of data capture has not been determined.

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
