Properties

CodeURLDescriptionType
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

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

CodeDisplayDefinitioninternalIdstatus
BUSN Business Identifier**Description:** An identifier whose scope is defined by the business practices associated with the object. In contrast to the other scope identifiers, the scope of the use of the id is not necessarily restricted to a single object, but may be reused for other objects closely associated with the object due to business practice.22609active
OBJ Object Identifier**Description:** The identifier associated with a particular object. It remains consistent as the object undergoes state transitions.22610active
VER Version Identifier**Description:** An identifier that references a particular object as it existed at a given point in time. The identifier **SHALL** change with each state transition on the object. I.e. The version identifier of an object prior to a 'suspend' state transition is distinct from the identifier of the object after the state transition. Each version identifier can be tied to exactly one ControlAct event which brought that version into being (though the control act may never be instantiated). **NOTE:** Applications that do not support versioning of objects must ignore and not persist these ids to avoid confusion resulting from leaving the same identifier on an object that undergoes changes.22611active
