Namespace value


fhir namespace


This namespace is used to identify an NCTS profile of the HL7 FHIR® ValueSet resource. This profile supports creation of value sets which are defined through composition of codes from one or more coding systems (including SNOMED CT terminologies, the LOINC coding system, and codes defined in NCTS Complete Code System content items). While NCTS Composed Value Set content items may be expanded, this profile does not support representation of the expansion.

This profile is applied by NCTS Conformant Terminology Service Application instances including the NCTS National Terminology Server.
