Retrieve Medication Request
Access data on prescribed medications requested for a patient. Retrieve information on medication types, dosage instructions, and prescribing healthcare providers. Useful for understanding a patient's prescribed medications and treatment plans.
To access this clinical data you'll need the patient identifier, obtainable through the Retrieve Patient interaction.
Retrieving the list of medication requests can be done by sending a GET request. The request is sent to the MedicationRequest endpoint:
Where <region> should be defined according to the different Founda regions and <org-x> should be replaced with the Healthcare Provider's organization ID that you are integrated with.
The response contains a Bundle with 0, 1 or N matching MedicationRequests. The full MedicationRequest resource can be retrieved with the identifier of the selected MedicationRequest from the result set.
Founda adheres to recognized standards (IHE, HL7 FHIR) to ensure compatibility and harmonization among diverse systems. If there is a profile available for an interaction, it is recommended and preferred to follow the prescribed transactions.
The Retrieve MedicationRequest interaction with the Founda Platform is based on the IHE QEDm profile. To indicate that the request and response should comply with PCC-44, the _profile parameter should be included to the search set: .../MedicationRequest?_profile=https://profiles.ihe.net/ITI/QEDm.
In order to comply with the PCC-44 transaction, the interaction should at least support the parameter in the table below. Additional search parameters, as defined in the FHIR MedicationRequest resource, can be used as well.
