Enum DataelementStringency

    • Enum Constant Detail


        public static final DataelementStringency COMPARABLE
        The data element is sufficiently well-constrained that multiple pieces of data captured according to the constraints of the data element will be comparable (though in some cases, a degree of automated conversion/normalization may be required).

        public static final DataelementStringency FULLYSPECIFIED
        The data element is fully specified down to a single value set, single unit of measure, single data type, etc. Multiple pieces of data associated with this data element are fully comparable.

        public static final DataelementStringency EQUIVALENT
        The data element allows multiple units of measure having equivalent meaning; e.g. "cc" (cubic centimeter) and "mL" (milliliter).

        public static final DataelementStringency CONVERTABLE
        The data element allows multiple units of measure that are convertable between each other (e.g. inches and centimeters) and/or allows data to be captured in multiple value sets for which a known mapping exists allowing conversion of meaning.

        public static final DataelementStringency SCALEABLE
        A convertable data element where unit conversions are different only by a power of 10; e.g. g, mg, kg.
      • FLEXIBLE

        public static final DataelementStringency FLEXIBLE
        The data element is unconstrained in units, choice of data types and/or choice of vocabulary such that automated comparison of data captured using the data element is not possible.
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static DataelementStringency[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (DataelementStringency c : DataelementStringency.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static DataelementStringency valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
