CodeDisplayDefinitionCanonical Status
activeActiveThe prescription is 'actionable', but not all actions that are implied by it have occurred yet.~active

cancelledCancelledThe prescription has been withdrawn before any administrations have occurred.~abandoned
completedCompletedAll actions that are implied by the prescription have occurred.~complete
entered-in-errorEntered In ErrorSome of the actions that are implied by the medication request may have occurred. For example, the medication may have been dispensed and the patient may have taken some of the medication. Clinical decision support systems should take this status into account.~error

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - see Code System for further information

CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
