Importing FHIR Packages into the InterSystems IRIS for Health Server
HL7® FHIR® packages are collections of resources that can be distributed under one name. With a FHIR package, there is no need to version individual resources or update cascading profiles. They facilitate automated publication, discovery, consumption, and updates. FHIR packages are closely related to FHIR profiles, since FHIR packages may contain customized resources. A FHIR profile is a customized specific resource definition, created by specifying a set of constraints and/or extensions on a base FHIR resource.
InterSystems IRIS for Health™ helps you work with FHIR packages and FHIR profiles quickly and seamlessly. The exercise below helps you understand how to work with FHIR packages in InterSystems IRIS for Health. Specifically, you will learn how to:
