This section provides information which will be useful for FHIR implementers, including information about available libraries, tools, and other similar resources, as well as where to seek help.

In addition to the content below, a number of implementation resources can be found on the Downloads Page.

This module also contains some specific documentation that relates to issues commonly encountered by developers:

For more general considerations, see the Security and Privacy module.

The HL7 Confluence has a list of public test servers icon that have been created by the FHIR community and made available to help implementers test their code. While the reference servers are not considered to be a normative part of the FHIR specification, the maintainers make every effort to ensure that they are fully compliant.

The HL7 Confluence has a list of open source FHIR implementations icon. These libraries may be used by developers to quickly add FHIR capabilities to their applications.

A number of tools are available to profilers wishing to create profiles for use in their implementations. A current list of tools can be found here icon on HL7 Confluence. (See the conformance module for information on profiling.)

A number of tools are available to solution testers who want to test FHIR implementations for conformance to the FHIR specification. A current list of such tools can be found here icon.

The following are a few ways that implementers can seek help as they work with FHIR:

The reference servers and reference implementations generally try to keep up to date with recent changes to the FHIR specification. Each server may have multiple endpoints which are held to a specific version of the specification, but generally there will also be endpoints available for testing which conform to a very recent build.

Efforts are now underway to create a curated collection of quality test data which can be used by FHIR implementers to help test their applications. This collection will be made available when it is ready.
