CodeSystem: ParticipationMode


Defining URL:http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ParticipationMode
Status:Active as of 2019-03-20

A set of codes specifying the modality by which the Entity playing the Role is participating in the Act.

Examples: Physically present, over the telephone, written communication.

Rationale: Particularly for author (originator) participants this is used to specify whether the information represented by the act was initially provided verbally, (hand-)written, or electronically.

Open Issue: There needs to be a reexamination of the hierarchies as there seems to be some muddling between ELECTRONIC and other concepts that involve electronic communication that are in other hierarchies.

This Code system is referenced in the content logical definition of the following value sets:


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
statushttp://hl7.org/fhir/concept-properties#statusDesignation of a concept's state. Normally is not populated unless the state is retired.code
