The OpenMRS FHIR module supports the ability to export and import data in the form of FHIR Resources.

Quick introduction

What is FHIR ?

What does FHIR look like ?

A resource is an instance of data that is stored or exchanged.  It has,

  • a known identity (URL) by which it can be addressed;
  • an identification of the subclass (an abstraction from the health domain) of which it is an instance;
  • a set of data elements, whose values can be a resource references or of a pre-defined type, and may be single- or array-valued;
  • a method of declaring additional data elements to extend the subclass;
  • a human-readable XHTML representation of its content;
  • a version ID that changes if the contents of the resource change;
  • the ability to be extended to include additional data elements.

Upcoming FHIR efforts

We are working on three major projects to improve our work on FHIR during the summer of 2015.
