Ancestor: HL7Connect.Cda.ANY

The character string datatype stands for text data, primarily intended for machine processing (e.g., sorting, querying, indexing, etc.) or direct display. Used for names, symbols, presentation and formal expressions.

A ST SHALL have at least one character or else have a nullFlavo

Properties

string value;
   The actual content of the string. Refer to section 6.7.5 for discussion on String character encodings.

This is an example of the primitive type wrapping pattern. See section 6.3 for more details.

string language;
   The human language of the content. Valid codes are taken from the IETF RFC 3066. If this attribute is null, the language may be inferred from elsewhere, either from the context or from unicode language tags, for example.

Note: While Language tags usually alter the meaning of the text, the language does not alter the meaning of the characters in the text.

Note: add a note that language is often defaulted to context

ISet<HL7Connect.Cda.ST> translation;
   Alternate renditions of the same content translated into a different language. Translations may not contain translations.

While Language tags usually alter the meaning of the text, the language does not alter the meaning of the characters in the text.

Note: add a note that language is often defaulted to context


Methods
