Source-Provided Files: Summary

  (return to top)

The HL7V3.0 source is provided in an xml file called DEFN=UV=VO=1061-20100829.coremif.  Elements in this xml file can be described by their path of xml tags starting from the root. In the xml path descriptions below, an XPath-like format is used to describe the origin of various items, but the top-level <vocabularyModel> path element is omitted for brevity.

Note that some HL7V3.0 elements, such as <conceptProperty>, use a "name, value" format instead of nested xml tags to represent properties, e.g., <conceptProperty name="status" value="retired"/> instead of <conceptProperty><status>retired</status></conceptProperty>. Such a "name, value" item is represented in the xml path descriptions below using the format "conceptProperty/@name=status".

Notes:
- Each such concept is given a hierarchical relationship under the codeSystem
(TTY="CSY") concept within which it is embedded
- Non-preferred term types (NPT or ONP) are used where

codeSystem/releasedVersion/concept/code/@status is "retired"
- Some retired concepts are defined with a code and an internalId but have no printName; these concepts are given STR = "Retired Code"
