Allows a Pharmacy to Request a New Prescription For a New Course of Therapy or to Continue Therapy


HL7 FHIR Medication Request

The American Medical Association appreciates the opportunity to comment. “HL7 FHIR Medication Request” is listed as an emerging standard for a pharmacy. Presumably this is to replace the SCRIPT standard. While HL7 FHIR Medication Request may have potential, we would have concern with the adoption of two different standards creating multiple methods to doing the same thing.
