5.2 Terminologies


Warning In addition to international terminologies, own CodeSystems are also defined. It should be noted that CodeSystems may contain an implicit ValueSet, which can be found in the respective FHIR CodeSystem resource.

However, since ICD-10-GM is not expressive enough for rare diseases, coding should also be possible with other terminologies and classifications (such as alpha-ID and ORPHAcodes).
