The Medication resource is used for the identification and definition of a medication for the purposes of prescribing, dispensing, and administering a medication as well as for making statements about medication use.

Each Medication has next elements:

  • a medication code

Profile specific implementation guidance:

  • Since the binding is extensible, when a code is unavailable just text is allowed.
  • When the medication is compounded and is a list of ingredients, the code is still present and may contain only the text.

This resource conforms to USCDI V1 profile for Medication - refer to StructureDefinition US Core Medication. Medication response will be provided in JSON (refers to Capability Statement) format as per FHIR standard R4 version.

No required search criteria for us-core-medication profile.

The response to any search operation is always a list of resources in a Bundle or an Operation Outcome.
