MedMij FHIR IG - MedicationUse
Publication date: 02-10-2017
Status wikipage: final
This FHIR profile is based on the 2017 version of the ZIB MedicationUse, which can be found on the wiki.
MedicationUse describes taking or administering the medication, often in relation to a prescription, but also on the person’s own initiative. This describes the pattern of medication use, as reported by the patient themselves, a caregiver or healthcare provider. Documenting medication use provides insight into the use of prescribed medication as well as the use of medication at home.
Recording medication information is a very important part of continuity in healthcare. It concerns the core of patient safety. Healthcare professionals in the collaborative branch must always have access to an up-to-date medication overview. Applying the information model will usually involve:
- Recording the patient’s intake of self-medication or ‘drugs’.
- Recording the medication used during a patient’s stay at the hospital.
- Medication verification: recording the active medication profile.
