Scope of coverage

DEFINITION (SUPPLY): The supply resource covers information needed for the ordering and distribution of supplies within a healthcare facility or office.

Scope Challenge: Should MedicationDispense use the supply resource?

RIM scope

  • Role: Supply (classCode=SPLY, moodCode=EVN)

Resource appropriateness

Supplies in healthcare are necessary for the tracking of delivery of materials to the patient's room, dispensing of medicinal products, etc.

Expected implementations

Required for CCDA

  1. Need to decide whether this gets merged with MedicationDispense. If not, need to define scope to explicitly exclude that (both scope & RIM mapping)
  2. Need to expand the description a little bit. Is this only for "supply to patient" or does it include any transfer of material within healthcare? Can it include patient transport? If not, where is that handled?
  3. Need relationships identified. (Particularly confused by ImagingStudy)
  4. Should look at NCPDP, probably OpenEHR, jurisdictional specifications (e.g. Vision dispense for pan-Canadian claims)
  5. Need example scenarios
