Medication codes in SNOMED IPS Freeset and IPS Terminology

As of 2022, there are few medication product codes in the SNOMED IPS Freeset and SNOMED IPS Terminology releases. This value set is included in the FHIR IPS Implementation Guide since we expect the code set freely available to increase in the future.

For the most recent codes available in the IPS Terminology, please see SNOMED IPS Terminology

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
System The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
