FHIR is an emerging standard for healthcare interoperability. While OpenMRS has been an early adopter of the FHIR standard, there is still work to do to get our FHIR implementation working properly. This project focuses on implementing support for FHIR narratives. FHIR narratives are human-readable representations of a FHIR resource. Basically, they provides a simple XHTML web fragment that includes all the relevant content.
