The Digital Medicines Specification supports the following care communications:
Pharmacy Vaccinations Administration – A FHIR Document used to notify a patient’s registered GP Practice on the administration of vaccinations to a patient at a Pharmacy.
Pharmacy Emergency Medication Supply – A FHIR Document used to notify a patient’s registered GP Practice of emergency medication(s) supplied to a patient at a Pharmacy.
FHIR Messaging components specified within this site have been developed by NHS Digital and use CareConnect profiles created in collaboration with the INTEROPen community.
The INTEROPen vision is to create a library of nationally defined HL7® FHIR® resources and interaction patterns that implementers can adopt to simplify integration and interoperability within UK health and social care.
Find out more on the INTEROPen website.
This documentation builds on work done by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) in defining headings for clinical documents.
