Resources in the Medications category are used to support the immunization and medication processes. Some notable boundaries:
- The MedicationOrder resource is used to represent any prescribed medication (inpatient, outpatient, or prescription medications taken at home).
- The MedicationStatement resource represents the medication list as known at a point in time. This includes both known prescribed medications (anything in MedicationOrder) as well as patient stated or historical medications.
