Definition:

A code or set of codes (e.g., for routine, emergency,) specifying the urgency under which the Act happened, can happen, is happening, is intended to happen, or is requested/demanded to happen.

Logical Definition (CLD)

This value set includes codes based on the following rules:

  • Include these codes as defined in http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActPriority
    CodeDisplay
    AASAPAs soon as possible, next highest priority after stat.
    CRcallback resultsFiller should contact the placer as soon as results are available, even for preliminary results. (Was "C" in HL7 version 2.3's reporting priority.)
    ELelectiveBeneficial to the patient but not essential for survival.
    EMemergencyAn unforeseen combination of circumstances or the resulting state that calls for immediate action.
    PpreopUsed to indicate that a service is to be performed prior to a scheduled surgery. When ordering a service and using the pre-op priority, a check is done to see the amount of time that must be allowed for performance of the service. When the order is placed, a message can be generated indicating the time needed for the service so that it is not ordered in conflict with a scheduled operation.
    PRNas neededAn "as needed" order should be accompanied by a description of what constitutes a need. This description is represented by an observation service predicate as a precondition.
    RroutineRoutine service, do at usual work hours.
    RRrush reportingA report should be prepared and sent as quickly as possible.
    SstatWith highest priority (e.g., emergency).
    Ttiming criticalIt is critical to come as close as possible to the requested time (e.g., for a through antimicrobial level).
    UDuse as directedDrug is to be used as directed by the prescriber.
    URurgentCalls for prompt action.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

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
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
