Enum ObservationCategory

    • Enum Constant Detail

      • SOCIALHISTORY

        public static final ObservationCategory SOCIALHISTORY
        The Social History Observations define the patient's occupational, personal (e.g. lifestyle), social, and environmental history and health risk factors, as well as administrative data such as marital status, race, ethnicity and religious affiliation.
      • VITALSIGNS

        public static final ObservationCategory VITALSIGNS
        Clinical observations measure the body's basic functions such as such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, height, weight, body mass index, head circumference, pulse oximetry, temperature, and body surface area.
      • IMAGING

        public static final ObservationCategory IMAGING
        Observations generated by imaging. The scope includes observations, plain x-ray, ultrasound, CT, MRI, angiography, echocardiography, nuclear medicine.
      • LABORATORY

        public static final ObservationCategory LABORATORY
        The results of observations generated by laboratories. Laboratory results are typically generated by laboratories providing analytic services in areas such as chemistry, hematology, serology, histology, cytology, anatomic pathology, microbiology, and/or virology. These observations are based on analysis of specimens obtained from the patient and submitted to the laboratory.
      • PROCEDURE

        public static final ObservationCategory PROCEDURE
        Observations generated by other procedures. This category includes observations resulting from interventional and non-interventional procedures excluding lab and imaging (e.g. cardiology catheterization, endoscopy, electrodiagnostics, etc.). Procedure results are typically generated by a clinician to provide more granular information about component observations made during a procedure, such as where a gastroenterologist reports the size of a polyp observed during a colonoscopy.
      • SURVEY

        public static final ObservationCategory SURVEY
        Assessment tool/survey instrument observations (e.g. Apgar Scores, Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA))
      • EXAM

        public static final ObservationCategory EXAM
        Observations generated by physical exam findings including direct observations made by a clinician and use of simple instruments and the result of simple maneuvers performed directly on the patient's body.
      • THERAPY

        public static final ObservationCategory THERAPY
        Observations generated by non-interventional treatment protocols (e.g. occupational, physical, radiation, nutritional and medication therapy)
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static ObservationCategory[] 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 (ObservationCategory c : ObservationCategory.values())
            System.out.println(c);
        
        Returns:
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static ObservationCategory 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.)
        Parameters:
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        Returns:
        the enum constant with the specified name
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
      • fromCode

        public static ObservationCategory fromCode​(String codeString)
                                            throws org.hl7.fhir.exceptions.FHIRException
        Throws:
