This is a value set defined by the FHIR project.


Defining URL:http://hl7.org/fhir/ValueSet/formatcodes
Name:DocumentReference Format Code Set
Definition:The value set is defined to be the set of format codes defined by the IHE Technical Framework, and also including additional format codes defined by the HL7. The value set is listed in HITSP C80 Table 2-153 Format Code Value Set Definition, with additions published later by IHE as published at http://wiki.ihe.net/index.php?title=IHE_Format_Codes and with additions published later by HL7 as published at http://wiki.hl7.org/index.php?title=CDA_Format_Codes_for_IHE_XDS. This is the code specifying the technical format of the document. Along with the typeCode, it should provide sufficient information to allow any potential document consumer to know if it will be able to process the document. The code shall be sufficiently specific to ensure processing/display by identifying a document encoding, structure and template. The actual list of codes here is incomplete

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
DefinitionAn explanation of the meaning of the concept
