Related standards The following may also be useful resources: * [FHIR Care Connect API standards]( - use these API standards for FHIR STU3 England specific profiles. * [FHIR UK Core API standards]( - use these API standards for FHIR R4 United Kingdom specific profiles. * [Terminology Server API]( - use this API to retrieve terminologies and classifications from the NHS Digital Terminology Server. * [FHIR UK Core]( - published versions of the UK Core Implementation Guide
Dependencies This standard needs to be reviewed and implemented alongside: * [SCCI0052: Dictionary of medicines and devices (dm+d)]( * [SCCI0034: SNOMED CT]( * [FHIR R4 UK Core (the UK specific version)]( - guidance is provided that allows recording of a clinical assessment of an allergy or intolerance * [eDischarge summary v2.1]( - NHS Digital worked with the PRSB to develop the specification for an electronic discharge summary. PRSB provided the approach and detail in the form of an information model for allergies and adverse reactions. At the time of publication APIs and specifications are available to support the following use cases: * [Dose syntax]( - use this API standard to provide a structured way to record dosage instructions between primary and secondary care settings. * [Electronic Prescription Service - FHIR API]( - use this API to access the EPS (Electronic Prescription Service), the national service used to send electronic prescriptions messages between prescribers and community dispensers. * [ePMA (electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration) API standards]( - use this specification to develop an API to share medication requests between ePMA systems and hospital pharmacy stock control systems. * [GP Connect Access Record Structured - FHIR API]( - use this API to retrieve structured information (including medication and allergy/intolerance) from a patient’s GP practice record.
