This Code system is used in the following value sets:

  • RequestStatus (Codes identifying the stage lifecycle stage of a request)

Codes identifying the stage lifecycle stage of a request

This code system http://hl7.org/fhir/request-status defines the following codes:

draft DraftThe request has been created but is not yet complete or ready for action
active ActiveThe request is ready to be acted upon
suspended SuspendedThe authorization/request to act has been temporarily withdrawn but is expected to resume in the future
cancelled CancelledThe authorization/request to act has been terminated prior to the full completion of the intended actions. No further activity should occur.
completed CompletedActivity against the request has been sufficiently completed to the satisfaction of the requester
entered-in-error Entered in ErrorThis electronic record should never have existed, though it is possible that real-world decisions were based on it. (If real-world activity has occurred, the status should be "cancelled" rather than "entered-in-error".)
unknown UnknownThe authoring system does not know which of the status values currently applies for this request. Note: This concept is not to be used for "other" . One of the listed statuses is presumed to apply, but the system creating the request doesn't know.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LevelA 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
SourceThe source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe 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
