15905 need comment for Dosage.doseAndRate

  • was the value set binding done? dose-and-rate-type is present: calculated, ordered
  • everything is done and applied!
  • Stephen asked if the multiple iterations might conflict? is there a mechanism to prevent such conflicts?
    • new tracker item 15905 created for a doseAndRate comment that the multiple instances of doseAndRate cannot conflict.

15105 - MedicationStatement - alignment with WorkFlow

    • notTaken was removed
    • need to consider how to reflect what the prescriber thinks should be taken by the patient - is this a medStatement or is this a MedRequest?
    • Lloyd believes should be using a MedRequest with a "plan" status
    • Choices:
      • take MedStatement back to the way it was
      • US Core - embrace List
      • follow Lloyd's suggestion to use MedRequest with "Plan" status
      • use status field to identify if a prescriber believes the patient should be on this med and uses taken element to identify if the patient is following the order and taking the medication - could previous do this before we aligned MedStatement with workflow
    • March 5, 2018: - deferred until March 12, 2018
      • Ask Lloyd to join call - complete - he can't join on March 12. Need to provide an update to him
    • March 12, 2018:
      • Lloyd believes that MedStatement should only be an indicator of whether the patient/provider says they are taking the medication
      • Options:
        • revert back to having "notTaken"(pre workflow harmonization)
        • provider instructions for medication - should use MedicationRequest - with intent element
        • implement List resources to get active medication list - not preferred
        • current resource with "not taken" as a status - not preferred
      • Need to take this conversation more public -
        • Workflow group - Melva to ask Lloyd to add to Workflow agenda
        • Zulip - posting to Zulip
          • add Workflow discussion
