0INSTANCEspecific**Description:**A determiner that specifies that the Entity object represents a particular physical thing (as opposed to a universal, kind, or class of physical thing). **Discussion:** It does not matter whether an INSTANCE still exists as a whole at the point in time (or process) when we mention it, for example, a drug product lot is an INSTANCE even though it has been portioned out for retail purpose.
1  GROUPspecific groupA determiner that specifies that the Entity object represents a particular collection of physical things (as opposed to a universal, kind, or class of physical thing). While the collection may resolve to having only a single individual (or even no individuals), the potential should exist for it to cover multiple individuals.

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
Source The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The 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
