This Code system is used in the following value sets: Medication dispense status codes

MedicationDispense Status Codes This code system defines the following codes:

Code Display Definition
preparation Preparation The core event has not started yet, but some staging activities have begun (e.g. initial compounding or packaging of medication). Preparation stages may be tracked for billing purposes.
in-progress In Progress The dispensed product is ready for pickup.
cancelled Cancelled The dispensed product was not and will never be picked up by the patient.
on-hold On Hold The dispense process is paused while waiting for an external event to reactivate the dispense. For example, new stock has arrived or the prescriber has called.
completed Completed The dispensed product has been picked up.
entered-in-error Entered in Error The dispense was entered in error and therefore nullified.
stopped Stopped Actions implied by the dispense have been permanently halted, before all of them occurred.
declined Declined The dispense was declined and not performed.
unknown Unknown The authoring system does not know which of the status values applies for this medication dispense. Note: this concept is not to be used for other - one of the listed statuses is presumed to apply, it's just now known which one.
