Implementation guide for interoperable medicines

This guidance is under active development by NHS England and content may be added or updated on a regular basis.

Dosage Examples - Infusions

To illustrate how the FHIR Dosage structure should be used for inpatient infusion use cases.

Infusions are complex because they may be dispensed and prepared in three ways;

  1. Dispensed and prepared by the hospital pharmacy and delivered to the ward
  2. Dispensed by the hospital pharmacy and prepared on the ward
  3. Dispensed by the hospital pharmacy as a pre-prepared and dm+d coded product for the ward

This difference changes the use of the MedicationDispense resources. The initiating MedicationRequest and any resulting MedicationAdministration resource should not be different due to the above but we will verify this as part of creating these implementation guidance examples.

Note: This page is work-in-progress and may be subject to change.

Ceftriaxone continuous infusion

Clinical Scenario

The patient requires 1 gram of Ceftriaxone to be infused over 30 minutes, once a day, for 5 days, for pneumonia.

Prescribing Event

This MedicationRequest is created by the EPMA system for the prescription/order for Ceftriaxone via an infusion. This resource would be made available to the hospital pharmacy.

Dispensing Event: Prepared by Pharmacy

Note: This example is work-in-progress and may be subject to change.

If the infusion is to be prepared by the hospital pharamcy team.

This Bundle is created by the pharmacy system for what has been dispensed. A bundle is used in this example because it contains two resources. A Medication resource details the two ingredients that have been used to prepare the infusion. A MedicationDispense references the Medication and details the dosing instruction for the infusion. This bundle would be made available to the ward EPMA system.

Dispensing Event: Prepared by Ward

Note: This example is work-in-progress and may be subject to change.

If the infusion is to be prepared by the hospital ward team.

This Bundle is created by the pharmacy system for what has been dispensed. A bundle is used in this example because it contains two MedicationDispense resources. The first is for the Ceftriaxone powder. The second is for the Sodium chloride diluent. This bundle would be made available to the ward EPMA system. The infusion would be prepared on the ward.

Heparin infusion

Heparin medication is a good example of a complex infusion. A typical treatment starts with a single loading dose based on the patient's body weight, followed by a continuous maintenance dose, again based on body weight. The dose, expressed as a number of units per kilogram, would be defined by the Heparin protocol implementation by the Trust.

Two sets of loading dose and maintenance are shown below. The first is where the Trust pharmacy team calculate the actual volume of medication to be infused, based on the units per kilogram calculations.

The second set of examples is where the ward clinicians have performed the calulations and these are recorded on the ePMA system. The FHIR standard allows multiple dosing instructions so the examples include the calculated dose as a volume and as a number of 'units'..

In all cases, the patient's body weight is shared within a referenced Observation resource.
