      Update scope and usage as follows:

      This resource covers the administration of all medications and vaccines. Please refer to the Immunization Resource/Profile for the treatment of vaccines. It will principally be used within care settings (including inpatient) to record the capture of medication administrations, including self-administrations of oral medications, injections, intra-venous infusions adjustments, etc. It can also be used in outpatient settings to record allergy shots and other non-immunization administrations. In some cases, it might be used for home-health reporting, such as recording self-administered or even device-administered insulin.

      Note: devices coated with a medication (e.g. heparin) are not typically recorded as a medication administration.  However, medications administered via an implanted medication pump (e.g., insulin) would be recorded as a MedicationAdministration.
