Type Parameters



A CD represents any kind of concept usually by giving a code defined in a code system. A CD can contain the original text or phrase that served as the basis of the coding and one or more translations into the same or different coding systems. A CD can also contain qualifiers to describe the concept of left foot as a postcoordinated term built from the primary code "FOOT"

Concept Descriptors are used to represent complex, codified concepts within an HL7v3 message.
