This Code system is used in the following value sets:

The status of the diagnostic report.

This code system defines the following codes:

1registered RegisteredThe existence of the report is registered, but there is nothing yet available.
1partial PartialThis is a partial (e.g. initial, interim or preliminary) report: data in the report may be incomplete or unverified.
2  preliminary PreliminaryVerified early results are available, but not all results are final.
1final FinalThe report is complete and verified by an authorized person.
1amended AmendedSubsequent to being final, the report has been modified. This includes any change in the results, diagnosis, narrative text, or other content of a report that has been issued.
2  corrected CorrectedSubsequent to being final, the report has been modified to correct an error in the report or referenced results.
2  appended AppendedSubsequent to being final, the report has been modified by adding new content. The existing content is unchanged.
1cancelled CancelledThe report is unavailable because the measurement was not started or not completed (also sometimes called "aborted").
1entered-in-error Entered in ErrorThe report has been withdrawn following a previous final release. This 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".).
1unknown UnknownThe authoring/source system does not know which of the status values currently applies for this observation. Note: This concept is not to be used for "other" - one of the listed statuses is presumed to apply, but the authoring/source system does not know which.

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. See Code System for further information.
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
