The lack of consistency in…

  • The lack of consistency in how an "asserted" or "reported" medication is only growing.  MedicationStatement (and MedicationUsage in FHIR R5) is often used as a destination for this, meanwhile US Core puts asserted medication records as a qualifier in MedicationRequest, while Europe (via the International Patient Summary FHIR IG) seems to be also pushing MedicationStatement.
  • To be clear - my point is not what the correct place is to put reported medications.  My point is there needs to be ONE agreed-upon way to represent a Reported/Asserted medication and everyone use it.  Without that the concept of reported medications in EHRs remains a bit of a zoo a variations with no hope for interoperability
