FHIR R4 Value Set http://hl7.org/fhir/ValueSet/concept-subsumption-outcome

Vocabulary Work Group Maturity Level: 0Informative Use Context: Any

This is a value set defined by the FHIR project.


Defining URL:http://hl7.org/fhir/ValueSet/concept-subsumption-outcome

The subsumption relationship between code/Coding "A" and code/Coding "B". There are 4 possible codes to be returned: equivalent, subsumes, subsumed-by, and not-subsumed. If the server is unable to determine the relationship between the codes/Codings, then it returns an error (i.e. an OperationOutcome).

Expansion based on http://hl7.org/fhir/concept-subsumption-outcome version 4.0.0

All codes from system http://hl7.org/fhir/concept-subsumption-outcome

equivalentEquivalentThe two concepts are equivalent (have the same properties).
subsumesSubsumesCoding/code "A" subsumes Coding/code "B" (e.g. B has all the properties A has, and some of it's own).
subsumed-bySubsumed-ByCoding/code "A" is subsumed by Coding/code "B" (e.g. A has all the properties B has, and some of it's own).
not-subsumedNot-SubsumedCoding/code "A" and Coding/code "B" are disjoint (e.g. each has propeties that the other doesn't have).

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
