Revision History


Administration of medication describes the actual administration of the medication. This can be simply swallowing a tablet, applying ointment or paste, or an infusion that takes a considerable amount of time. The administration can refer to a medication prescription, but can also refer to home medication.


To precisely plan the medication to be administered in a chain of collaborating healthcare professionals, it is often best to have information on the most recent administrations of medication, food or blood products.

Type Zib.png
DCM::DefinitionCode NL-CM:9.3.1
data ProductToBeAdministered::Product
Definition The product taken or administered. This is usually medication. Food, blood products, aids and bandages do not strictly fall under the category of medication, but can be reported as well.

In principle, this will be the prescribed product, but the administrator may substitute it by replacing the product with an equivalent product. For example: two 50mg tablets can be administered instead of one 100mg tablet.

data Status
Definition The status of the administration, as a description of the stage within the administration process. For indivisible products (such as tablets or suppositories) only the status codes ‘completed’ and ‘cancelled’ apply. For divisible products (such as infusions), administration can also be ‘suspended’ or ‘aborted’.

When documenting this, the following interpretations are used:

  • Active: The product is administered.
  • Interrupted: Use has (temporarily) been interrupted, because of a side effect, for example. Later, the patient and/or doctor can decide whether or not to resume or discontinue use.
  • Discontinued: Administration has stopped.
  • Completed: The administration has now been completed (according to the plan, prescription or agreement).
  • Not started: The product was never administered.
