In Experience Data Model (XDM), the Medication class captures the minimum set of properties that define a substance used for medical treatment, especially a medicine or drug.

Class structure

Property Data type Description
_id String A unique, system-generated string identifier for the record. This field is used to track the uniqueness of an individual record, prevent duplication of data, and to look up that record in downstream services.

Since this field is system-generated, it does not be supplied an explicit value during data ingestion. However, you can still opt to supply your own unique ID values if you wish.
medicationId String A unique identifier for the medication.
medicationName String The name of the medication.

The class can be extended with the Healthcare medication field group to describe further details about the medicine or drug.
