SpecializesThe child code is a more narrow version of the concept represented by the parent code. I.e. Every child concept is also a valid parent concept. Used to allow determination of subsumption. Must be transitive, irreflexive, antisymmetric.Coding
GeneralizesInverse of Specializes. Only included as a derived relationship.Coding
internalIdhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/utg-concept-properties#v3-internal-idThe internal identifier for the concept in the HL7 Access database repository.code
inverseRelationshiphttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/utg-concept-properties#v3-inverse-relationshipProperty applies to the ConceptCodeRelationship code system. For each concept, it identifies the name of the inverse relationship.code
statushttp://hl7.org/fhir/concept-properties#statusDesignation of a concept's state. Normally is not populated unless the state is retired.code

This code system http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ConceptCodeRelationship defines the following codes:

hasPart has partThe target concept is a part or portion of the source concept.19971partOfactive
hasSubtype has subtypeTarget concept is a subtype / subclass or the source (or the target concept implies the source19970isAactive
smallerThan is smaller thanThe source concept code is "less than" the target concept in a strictly ordinal sense.19972greaterThanactive
