ValueSet: ObservationInterpretationDetected

Official URL: http://terminology.hl7.org/ValueSet/v3-ObservationInterpretationDetected Version: 2.0.0
Active as of 2014-03-26 Computable Name: ObservationInterpretationDetected
Other Identifiers: : urn:oid:2.16.840.1.113883.1.11.20328

Interpretations of the presence or absence of a component / analyte or organism in a test or of a sign in a clinical observation. In keeping with laboratory data processing practice, these concepts provide a categorical interpretation of the “meaning” of the quantitative value for the same observation.

LevelCodeSystemDisplayDefinition
1  ObservationInterpretationDetectionhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationInterpretationObservationInterpretationDetection

Interpretations of the presence or absence of a component / analyte or organism in a test or of a sign in a clinical observation. In keeping with laboratory data processing practice, these concepts provide a categorical interpretation of the "meaning" of the quantitative value for the same observation.

2    INDhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationInterpretationIndeterminate

The specified component / analyte, organism or clinical sign could neither be declared positive / negative nor detected / not detected by the performed test or procedure.

Usage Note: For example, if the specimen was degraded, poorly processed, or was missing the required anatomic structures, then "indeterminate" (i.e. "cannot be determined") is the appropriate response, not "equivocal".

3      Ehttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationInterpretationEquivocal

The test or procedure was successfully performed, but the results are borderline and can neither be declared positive / negative nor detected / not detected according to the current established criteria.

2    NEGhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationInterpretationNegative

An absence finding of the specified component / analyte, organism or clinical sign based on the established threshold of the performed test or procedure.

[Note: Negative does not necessarily imply the complete absence of the specified item.]

3      NDhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationInterpretationNot detected

The presence of the specified component / analyte, organism or clinical sign could not be determined within the limit of detection of the performed test or procedure.

2    POShttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationInterpretationPositive

A presence finding of the specified component / analyte, organism or clinical sign based on the established threshold of the performed test or procedure.

3      DEThttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ObservationInterpretationDetected

The measurement of the specified component / analyte, organism or clinical sign above the limit of detection of the performed test or procedure.


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
System 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
