ValueSet: Uds Plus Gender Identity Codes

Official URL: Version: 1.0.1
Standards status: Trial-use Maturity Level: 2 Computable Name: UdsPlusGenderIdentityCodes

The Uds Plus Gender Identity Codes is a ‘starter set’ of codes for identifying the gender identity of Patients.


Logical Definition (CLD)

This value set includes codes based on the following rules:



This value set contains 8 concepts

  ASKU but unknown

Information was sought but not found (e.g., patient was asked but didn't know)


**Description:**The actual value is not a member of the set of permitted data values in the constrained value domain of a variable. (e.g., concept not provided by required code system).

Usage Notes: This flavor and its specializations are most commonly used with the CD datatype and its flavors. However, it may apply to *any* datatype where the constraints of the type are tighter than can be conveyed. For example, a PQ that is for a true measured amount whose units are not supported in UCUM, a need to convey a REAL when the type has been constrained to INT, etc.

With coded datatypes, this null flavor may only be used if the vocabulary binding has a coding strength of CNE. By definition, all local codes and original text are part of the value set if the coding strength is CWE.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
System The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
