The purpose of this project is to expand upon the OpenMRS FHIR module so that it can consume a subset of FHIR resources and persist them in the OpenMRS database.
OpenMRS has recently undertaken a commitment to implement FHIR in order to ensure better interoperability between healthcare systems. The OpenMRS FHIR module was developed as part of these efforts. Currently, there is need to improve the folowing features for the FHIR module -
Add Oauth2 based security for the module to communite with third party systems
Add web based interfaces (akin to those implemented by the OpenMRS webservices module for users to be able to test / explore their sample messages
- Good Java skills
- Familiarity with J2EE web programming (e.g., JSPs)
- Ability to learn and work with FHIR and the HAPI
- Familiarity / willing to learn Oauth2
- Soft skills to interact with the HAPI and FHIR community in order to gather requirements and technical feedback
- Identify the best approach to update the OpenMRS FHIR module to consume FHIR resources
- Build support for the FHIR module to accept a subset of FHIR resources sent from third party applications. At minimum, the student shoul complete support for FHIR patient, practitioner, Observation, location and encounter resources.
- Create or update existing data elements in the OpenMRS database in response to these requests
- Make appropriate modifications to the OpenMRS database in order to support FHIR resources appropriately
- Forward an acknowledgement message to third party applications once the transaction is completed
- Build an audit mechanism to track transactions and their outcome
- Identify and implement support for additional FHIR resources
- Add security features to manage transactions
