The Swedish National Medication List

This implementation guide has a target audience of system integrators to the Swedish National Medication List (NLL).

The Swedish National Medication List is provided by the Swedish eHealth Agency (E-hälsomyndigheten).

The external API is based on the HL7® FHIR® standard and this guide describes supported FHIR® resources, use cases and preferred patterns. In other words the technical aspects of intergrating with NLL. All other documentation and a good starting point if you are new to NLL is the Handbok för vård- och apotekstjänster.

In some examples defined in this guide we use personal identity numbers. All these identity numbers are test identity numbers defined by the Swedish Tax Agency (sv. Skatteverket). These test persons are normally not availiable in our test environments.
