Revision History


Medication supply describes the supply of a medicinal product to a specific patient (or the administerer or a representative), with the intention of it being used according to the included instructions (usually to honor the supply request in a medication prescription). Medication supply takes place when the patient (or any of the others listed above) physically receives the product.


Recording supply information can be an important step in drawing up an up-to-date medication profile.

rootconcept MedicationSupply
Definition Root concept of the MedicationSupply building block. This root concept contains all data elements of the MedicationSupply building block.
Type Zib.png
data SuppliedProduct::Product
Definition The supplied product is usually a medicine. Strictly speaking, food, blood products, aids and bandages do not fall under the category of medication, but supplying these products can be reported in the same manner.

In most cases, the supplied product will match the product prescribed in the medication prescription.

In principle, this will be the prescribed product, but the supplier may substitute it by replacing the prescribed product with an equivalent product. Furthermore, the supplier can replace a generically formulated prescribed product by a trade product, or they can replace the prescribed trade product with a different trade product.

data SuppliedDose::Dose
Definition Instructions for the administerer to administer the medication (the patient themselves, a nurse or other aid).

The supplied dose will constitute more specified details of the administering schedule from the prescription, especially in terms of the administering schedule. For example, the prescription could contain 4xd1, which is then translated by the supplier into a label text as ‘1 unit to be taken 4 times a day, during meals’. In the case of Baxter packs, these kinds of codes are translated from ‘4xd1’ to specific times, such as 9:00am, 12:00pm, etc.
