So, in the last post we talked about setting up a FHIR server, and populating it with some sample data. Let’s turn our attention now to how we would interact with that server in the context of a ‘Medication List’, and we’ll use the STU-3 release candidate (as used at the recent Baltimore connectathon) as the basis of the discussion, though this should work just as well in older versions.
(Our discussion will generally apply to other lists – such as Allergies and Problem lists – though it’s not uncommon for there to be multiple Problem Lists for a patient that are ‘clinician focussed’ e.g. the list of significant problems from the perspective of a respiratory physician tends to be different to that from the perspective of an orthopedic surgeon. But I digress…)
