XDS classCode Metadata Coding System
Document Class Codes are used as a broad taxonomy for the sharing of health documents. They can be used as classCode values for implementation of the IHE XD* Profiles (XDS, XCA, XDR, XDM).
|Value Set Name||XDS Class Code|
|Value Set Identifier||18.104.22.168.4.1.19322.214.171.124.1.1|
|Code System Name||XDS Class Code|
|Code System Identifier||126.96.36.199.4.1.193188.8.131.52.1|
|Value Set Type||Static|
|Purpose of Value Set||These codes specify a high-level classification of the particular kind of document (e.g., Prescription, Discharge Summary,|
Report, Summary, Images, Treatment Plan, Patient Preferences, Workflow). Note that ClassCode uses a different value set
than the document typeCode that specifies the precise type of document from the user perspective.
|Method||The value set has values drawn from a coding scheme providing a coarse level of granularity (about 10 entries).|
It is a classification where a specifci document falls only under one possible value in the value set.
It has been designed to be free (or orthogonal) from medical specialties, so that it may be combined without
semantical conflicts with XDS practiceSetting Metadata that conveys the medical specialty.
The implementation of this value set requires that a consumer of coded values processes the “Code” for any automated decision and uses the associated Display Name only for rendering of the value in the value set."
XDS classCode Value Set
The table below lists the codes used for identification of classes of documents, when shared. These codes are intended to be used as classCode values recommended for implementation of the IHE XD* Profiles (XDS, XCA, XDR, XDM).
This value set is maintained by the IHE IT Infrastructure Technical Committee.
Note that the OID assigned to this code system is 184.108.40.206.4.1.193220.127.116.11.1 as assigned by the IHE ITI Domain for codes used for the purposes of cross-enterprise document sharing (XDS). For more information see ITI - OID assignment 18.104.22.168.4.1.19376.1.2.
