Other Identifiers: id: urn:oid:2.16.840.1.113883.5.107

A code specifying the meaning and purpose of every RoleLink instance. Each of its values implies specific constraints to what kinds of Role objects can be related and in which way.

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


This code system defines the following properties for its concepts

SpecializesCodingThe 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.
GeneralizesCodingInverse of Specializes. Only included as a derived relationship.
internalIdhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/utg-concept-properties#v3-internal-idcodeThe internal identifier for the concept in the HL7 Access database repository.

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


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

1REL relatedAn action taken with respect to a subject Entity by a regulatory or authoritative body with supervisory capacity over that entity. The action is taken in response to behavior by the subject Entity that body finds to be undesirable. Suspension, license restrictions, monetary fine, letter of reprimand, mandated training, mandated supervision, etc.*Examples:*21429relatedrelatedToA________A________active
2  BACKUP is backup forThis relationship indicates the source Role is available to the target Role as a backup. An entity in a backup role will be available as a substitute or replacement in the event that the entity assigned the role is unavailable. In medical roles where it is critical that the function be performed and there is a possibility that the individual assigned may be ill or otherwise indisposed, another individual is assigned to cover for the individual originally assigned the role. A backup may be required to be identified, but unless the backup is actually used, he/she would not assume the assigned entity role.21302backupbackupForAE_______AE_______active
2  CONT has contactThis relationship indicates the target Role provides or receives information regarding the target role. For example, AssignedEntity is a contact for a ServiceDeliveryLocation.23100contactForcontactAF_______AF_______active
2  DIRAUTH has direct authority overThe source Role has direct authority over the target role in a chain of authority.11605directAuthoritydirectAuthorityOverAA_______AA_______active
2  IDENT Identification**Description:** The source role provides identification for the target role. The source role must be IDENT. The player entity of the source role is constrained to be the same as (i.e. the equivalent of, or equal to) the player of the target role if present. If the player is absent from the source role, then it is assumed to be the same as the player of the target role.22184active
2  INDAUTH has indirect authority overThe source Role has indirect authority over the target role in a chain of authority.11606indirectAuthorityindirectAuthorithyOverAB_______AB_______active
2  PART has partThe target Role is part of the Source Role.11604partOfpartAC_______AC_______active
2  REPL replacesThis relationship indicates that the source Role replaces (or subsumes) the target Role. Allows for new identifiers and/or new effective time for a registry entry or a certification, etc.15952replacedByreplacementOfAD_______AD_______active
