Patient medication schedule
This schema represents the prescription of a therapeutic agent applied to the specific life schedule of a person, i.e., all the information specified by a physician pertaining a therapeutic agent in terms of route of administration and schedule for administration of every dose translated to the patient’s daily schedule.
The patient medication schedule identifies the time frame on a time line within which there should be a corresponding record of a single dose taken. The acceptable window of time before and/or after the scheduled time contributes to the definition of such time frame. The acceptable window is medication-specific and depends on the half life of the agent and the indication.
