Australian Requirements - FHIR Resources


Medication Request

Medication Dispense

Stephen provided an overview of discussions and rationales leading to selecting the three medication resources as priority items for Australian localisation work:

    • Identified as priority resources by members at the November 2016 conference call
    • Stakeholder willingness to commit resources to do the work

FHIR Medication Resources - Work Plan

Discussions on the workflow/sequence on locationalisation work:

    • serial/sequential versus parallel processing

Serial/sequential processing:

    • advantage - resource is the focal point of group efforts;
    • disadvantage - impacts of changes to one resource on others may be overlooked

Parallel processing

    • advantage - impacts of changes to one resource on other related resources will be identified and managed
    • disadvantage - requires members volunteer to lead parallel streams of work and coordination with each other


    • To start focused processing on Medication base resource
    • Followed by parallel processing on medication request and dispense resources

Action Arising

Members to provide the co-chairs with use cases/requirements at least one week prior to conference call on 30 January

email addresses:

Co-chair(s) will upload the use case/requirement documents to Medication WG confluence for member review and discussion at the conference call
