Enum CodesystemHierarchyMeaning

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<CodesystemHierarchyMeaning>

  • Enum Constant Details


      No particular relationship between the concepts can be assumed, except what can be determined by inspection of the definitions of the elements (possible reasons to use this: importing from a source where this is not defined, or where various parts of the hierarchy have different meanings).
    • ISA

      public static final CodesystemHierarchyMeaning ISA
      A hierarchy where the child concepts have an IS-A relationship with the parents - that is, all the properties of the parent are also true for its child concepts. Not that is-a is a property of the concepts, so additional subsumption relationships may be defined using properties or the [subsumes](extension-codesystem-subsumes.html) extension.
    • PARTOF

      public static final CodesystemHierarchyMeaning PARTOF
      Child elements list the individual parts of a composite whole (e.g. body site).

      Child concepts in the hierarchy may have only one parent, and there is a presumption that the code system is a "closed world" meaning all things must be in the hierarchy. This results in concepts such as "not otherwise classified.".
    • NULL

      public static final CodesystemHierarchyMeaning NULL
      added to help the parsers
  • Method Details

    • values

      Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared.
      an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
    • valueOf

      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
