Definition: A modifier is an attribute that changes the meaning of a clinical concept in a way that changes the fundamental classification (in SNOMED CT, the semantic hierarchy, or 'axis') of the code. The resulting modified meaning is not a subtype of the original meaning of the code, and the attribute is therefore not classified as a 'qualifier'. 'Family history of', 'Planned' and 'Not done' are all examples of modifiers.
