11.6 Resource MedicationKnowledge - Content

Pharmacy Work GroupMaturity Level: 1 Trial UseSecurity Category: Business Compartments: Not linked to any defined compartments

Information about a medication that is used to support knowledge.

Note that this content is preliminary has not undergone proper review by the appropriate Workgroups.

This resource supports use cases for creation of and querying for drug information including attributes such as drug classifications, images of medications, drug costs and/or coverages, etc. This resource can be used to return drug information as part of a formulary or a catalogue.

This resource is referenced by CatalogEntry and itself.

This resource does not implement any patterns.
