The discussion started with looking at the profile template and encountering the actor diagram. To achieve this, some discussions were held to try to have a first draft of the actors.
The FHIR resources for ordering are all the same - MedicationPrescription - with different payload. This does not mean that we have one single actor, but we reuse and instantiate the resource.
The actors that have been "agreed" are
- Administration Performer
- Dispenser (including the actions like preparation, transport, delivery)
- "Prescriber/Order placer?" - potentially including the previous "prescriber" and "Advisor/reviewer/..."
- To be discussed whether "planning" fits in the same concept or not.
Others that are considered but out of scope for now: - Medication ListS - Supply - Catalog management - ADE Reporting - (Person creating a medication statement)
Validation is an essential step in the workflow. However, a specific actor may or not be needed, especially if we consider the cascading of validations before a medication is dispensed. Late note JCT: This is more true when we consider that a given "validator" may simply say "this is valid from my point of view" but ignoring that additional validations may be needed. This is not common.
The prescription management is an important sub-process. Initially we may not need an actor for this, considering that the management data is explained in the profiles, but maybe in terms of the data needed and produced, but not a dedicated.
