Extending MedicationDispense to include barcode used


Can anyone help with the best approach to extending MedicationDispense to include the barcode(s) used for the dispensing the medication. The barcode itself would be the unique barcode generated from the pharmacy system which is usually printed on the dispensing label.

How would we extend MedicationDispense to relay this information?


A barcode is just a number - it’s just rendered in a font that’s easy to scan. Send the barcode using the MedicationDispense.identifier.
