Introduction and scope
The profile originates from the base resource Medication and contains information about the medicine the patient receives during treatment. The purpose of the profile is to specify the given medication and thus support the profile MedicationAdministration.
Alongside the profiles MedicationAdministration and SubstanceActiveIngredient, this profile is instantiated each time medicine is administered to the patient as the profiles create a chain and cannot function without each other.
The profile contains two elements: identifier and code. The element identifier contains a unique medication ID specific for the given medication. The element code contains a reference to the profile SubstanceActiveIngredient.
