Data Types Issue 57: II.useCode


This proposal is for a useCode on II. This idea was endorsed in principle by MnM (see motion below).

MnM Motion

To ease the adoption of HL7 v3, MnM recommends INM to add “useCode” to II. This would identify the intended scope/purpose/use of the identifier. See also the discussion around Types of Identifiers. Example concepts to be included:

  • Issued by scoper/author
  • Verified by scoper/author
  • Used by scoper/author
  • Non-player specific
  • Real-world id
  • Record id
  • Version-specific (snapshot)
  • View id
  • Reference
  • Definitional

MnM would like to participate in identifying requirements, appropriate contents, definitions and usage guidelines

Default values will be set to make the attribute backwards compatible
