FHIR Infrastructure Work GroupMaturity Level: 0 Trial UseSecurity Category: Anonymous Compartments: Not linked to any defined compartments

A Capability Statement documents a set of capabilities (behaviors) of a FHIR Server for a particular version of FHIR that may be used as a statement of actual server functionality or a statement of required or desired server implementation.

The capability statement is a key part of the overall conformance framework in FHIR. It is used as a statement of the features of actual software, or of a set of rules for an application to provide. This statement connects to all the detailed statements of functionality, such as StructureDefinitions and ValueSets. This composite statement of application capability may be used for system compatibility testing, code generation, or as the basis for a conformance assessment. For further information about Conformance testing, see Conformance Rules and Profiling FHIR.

Specifically, capability statements are used in one of three ways:

Instanceimplementation must be present and software may be present
Capabilityimplementation must be absent, software must be present
Requirementsimplementation and software must be absent

In this scenario, the capability statement describes the capabilities of a deployed and configured solution available at a particular access point or set of access points. The statement describes exactly how to interface with that deployed solution and thus provides for a degree of self-configuration of software solutions.

This is the type of statement that FHIR restful solutions are expected to make available on invocation of the capabilities operation. It is also the type of statement that forms a basis for the testing, certification or commissioning of specific software installations.

In this scenario, the capability statement describes generic capabilities of a software application or component solution. The solution might be available for purchase or other acquisition and might be deployed and configured at any number of independent sites. Because it is not dependent on any particular implementation, the profile cannot provide specific details such as endpoint addresses. It may also need to document various configurations in which the application can be set up or describe the degree of customizability associated with the solution.

This type of statement may be used as a marketing tool by software and system developers to formally describe their capabilities. It can also be used as the basis for conformance testing of software solutions independent of a particular installation.

In this scenario, the capability statement describes the capabilities of a desired system. It might be used as part of an architectural design process to document needed system capabilities, or might be used as part of an RFP process to formally document the requirements of a requested solution and to document the criteria by which proposals will be evaluated.

These three types of profiles can be used together. A requirements statement can be compared against the solution statements proffered by respondents to an RFP. A solution statement for a software package forms the starting point for the implementation statement associated with a particular installation of that software package.

CapabilityStatement2s of type "requirement" describe what capabilities are potentially relevant; additional documentation or extensions (see capabilitystatement2-expectation) within the CapabilityStatement2 are expected to make more explicit statements of degree of expectation associated with each capability.

Capability Statements provide for a degree of automatic configuration and adaptation. However, capturing absolutely every variation that could impact the interoperability of two systems, let alone keeping that detailed information up-to-date as systems evolve through maintenance and upgrades, is rarely practical. Therefore, capability statements should be seen as an interim step. They provide a degree of automation. However, they also provide a great deal of human-readable content that can minimize the need for direct communication between the operators of the systems being configured to interoperate.

Applications may implement multiple versions. If they do, then a CapabilityStatement2 describes the system's support for a particular version of FHIR, and the system will have multiple statements, one for each version it supports. For further information, see Managing Multiple Versions, and the $versions operation.

While the core of the CapabilityStatement2 resource is Normative, many of the flags that indicate exactly how the system operates are marked as trial-use. Roughly, the portions of the resource that correspond to OpenAPI document elements are normative.

Applications looking for normative stability should only use the normative parts of the resource, and not populate or ignore the portions labelled trial-use. To assist with this, clients can ask for the server to return a 'Normative content only' CapabilityStatement2 using the mode parameter on /metadata.

Community discussion regarding more capable, efficient and computable representations of an applications capabilities may lead to change to the trial-use parts of this resource or the creation of new resources and/or functionality in future versions of this specification.

This resource is referenced by itself.

This resource does not implement any patterns.

CapabilityStatement2 (DomainResource)An absolute URI that is used to identify this capability statement2 when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or an instance; also called its canonical identifier. This SHOULD be globally unique and SHOULD be a literal address at which at which an authoritative instance of this capability statement2 is (or will be) published. This URL can be the target of a canonical reference. It SHALL remain the same when the capability statement2 is stored on different serversurl : uri [0..1]The identifier that is used to identify this version of the capability statement2 when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or instance. This is an arbitrary value managed by the capability statement2 author and is not expected to be globally unique.

  • The CapabilityStatement2 resource provides for an application to describe its use of the RESTful paradigm messaging events, or FHIR documents. Usually, an application would only describe one, but more than one may be described
  • RESTful CapabilityStatement2 rules:
    • RESTful servers are required to provide this resource on demand. Servers SHALL specify what resource types and operations are supported, and SHOULD also specify profiles for each resource type.
    • The CapabilityStatement2 returned on demand may represent the specific capabilities granted to a specific user if retrieved with that specific user's credentials, if one is in context. Servers that require authentication SHOULD still return a CapabilityStatemnt before authentication/authorization is performed
    • RESTful clients SHOULD publish a capability statement
    • The search parameters that a server supports (or a client makes use of) are specified in the resource profile that the capability statement references
    • Resource Types or operations that are not listed are not supported
  • Messaging CapabilityStatement2 rules:
    • The interpretation of request and response depends on the mode. If the mode is sender, then request specifies what the application sends, and response specifies what it accepts. If the mode is "receiver", then this is reversed
    • If a request or response is not specified for an event, then no rules are made for it
    • Events that are not listed are not supported
    • The MessageDefinition resource is newly proposed and is still considered 'draft'. The supportedMessage element can be used in place of the event and the work group believes it may meet implementer needs better, however because the new mechanism has not yet been reviewed by ballot, the older 'event' mechanism has been retained. Implementers may use one or the other to define their capabilities. Feedback is welcome.
  • Document CapabilityStatement2 rules:
    • Document profiles should directly constrain the Document.information.class & type elements so that there is no ambiguity concerning which profile any given document conforms to.
  • Other service-based use of resources: Due to the variability of these services, the CapabilityStatement2 resource does not attempt to describe service-based use of resources. The various service specifications will need to describe this usage in their own way.

A CapabilityStatement2 declares two different kinds of profiles for the functionality it describes. For a discussion of the use of these two types of resources, see two uses for profiles.

Search parameters for this resource. The common parameters also apply. See Searching for more information about searching in REST, messaging, and services.
