Scope of coverage
This resource describes the request for the use of a device by a patient. The device may be any pertinent device specified in the Device resource. The device use request may represent an order or a prescription that was entered by a practitioner in a CPOE system or a proposal made by a clinical decision support (CDS) system based on a patient's clinical record and context of care.
The SupplyRequest resource is used to request devices when handling them generically (as any other supply) rather than being associated with a patient or having patient specific instructions. When requests are for things associated with a patient, then use DeviceUseRequest.
For requesting medications use the MedicationRequest resource.
- Role: Supply (classCode=SPLY, moodCode=RQO )
Resource to record the request(order) of devices for patients are necessary in healthcare.
- CPOE Systems
- FHIR request pattern
1) A provider may order a:
- hearing aids
- an insulin pump
for his patient.
2) A decision support tool may suggest a device based upon a particular protocol.
