Document Dis

The Medication Dispense document describes the direct dispensation of ONE drug to a patient or legitimized third party with regard to a later application of the product by a qualified health professional. Please see its description in the CH EMED IG.

A dispense (DIS) is an entry that describes an act of dispensing one or more medications to a patient. It is usually done by a pharmacist and may occasionally be done by another healthcare professional. They can be for a prescribed treatment or at the patient’s request (over-the-counter, OTC). A dispense entry has no status, it is always considered active. Only PADV COMMENTs can apply to it. It is useful to pharmacists to determine if a prescription may still be dispensed.
