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 case-sensitive code system http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-hl7CMETAttribution defines the following codes in a Is-A heirarchy:

contact **Description:** Provides sufficient information to allow the object identified to be contacted. This is likely to have the content of identified and confirmable plus telephone number.23149active
identified **Description:** This variant is a proper subset of universal and is intended to provide sufficient information to identify the object(s) modeled by the CMET. This variant is only suitable for use within TIGHTLY COUPLED SYSTEMS ONLY. This variant provides ONLY the ID (and code where applicable) and Name. Other variants may not be substituted at runtime.23153active
identified-confirmable **Description:** This extends the identified variant by adding just sufficient additional information to allow the identity of object modeled to be confirmed by a number of corroborating items of data; for instance a patient's date of birth and current address. However, specific contact information, such as telephone number, are not viewed as confirming information.23151active
identified-informational **Description:** Generally the same information content as "contactable" but using new "informational" CMETs as dependant CMETs. This flavor allows expression of the CMET when non-focal class information is not known.23152active
informational **Description:** Generally the same information content as "contactable", but with required (not mandatory) ids on entry point class. This flavor allows expression of the CMET even when mandatory information is not known.23150active
minimal **Description:** Provides more than identified, but not as much as universal. There are not expected to be many of these.23148active
universal **Description:** This variant includes all attributes and associations present in the R-MIM. Any of non-mandatory and non-required attributes and/or associations may be present or absent, as permitted in the cardinality constraints.23147active
