11.1 Resource MedicationRequest - Content

Pharmacy Work GroupMaturity Level: 3 Trial UseCompartments: Encounter, Patient, Practitioner

An order or request for both supply of the medication and the instructions for administration of the medication to a patient. The resource is called "MedicationRequest" rather than "MedicationPrescription" or "MedicationOrder" to generalize the use across inpatient and outpatient settings, including care plans, etc., and to harmonize with workflow patterns.

This resource covers all orders for medications for a patient. This includes in-patient medication orders as well as community orders (whether filled by the prescriber or by a pharmacy). It also includes orders for over-the-counter medications (e.g. Aspirin), total parenteral nutrition and diet/ vitamin supplements. It may be used to support the order of medication-related devices. It is not intended for use in prescribing particular diets, or for ordering non-medication-related items (eye-glasses, supplies, etc.).

The MedicationRequest resource is a "request" resource from a FHIR workflow perspective - see Workflow Request.

The MedicationRequest resource allows requesting only a single medication. If a workflow requires requesting multiple items simultaneously, this is done using multiple instances of this resource. These instances can be linked in different ways, depending on the needs of the workflow. For guidance, refer to the Request pattern

The MedicationRequest resource is used to request or order medication for a subject. When requesting supplies or devices when there is a patient focus or instructions regarding their use, SupplyRequest or DeviceRequest should be used instead

The Medication domain includes a number of related resources

MedicationRequest An order for both supply of the medication and the instructions for administration of the medicine to a patient.
MedicationDispense Provision of a supply of a medication with the intention that it is subsequently consumed by a patient (usually in response to a prescription).
MedicationAdministration When a patient actually consumes a medicine, or it is otherwise administered to them
MedicationStatement This is a record of medication being taken by a patient, or that the medication has been given to a patient where the record is the result of a report from the patient, or another clinician. A medication statement is not a part of the prescribe->dispense->administer sequence but is a report that such a sequence (or at least a part of it) did take place resulting in a belief that the patient has received a particular medication.

This resource is referenced by CarePlan, Claim, ClinicalImpression, DiagnosticReport, ExplanationOfBenefit, MedicationAdministration, MedicationDispense, MedicationStatement and Observation
