7.4 Resource TestScript - Content

FHIR Infrastructure icon Work GroupMaturity Level: 4 Trial UseSecurity Category: Anonymous Compartments: No defined compartments

A structured set of tests against a FHIR server or client implementation to determine compliance against the FHIR specification.

This resource is a Quality Reporting & Testing resource from a FHIR Implementation Support perspective - see Implementation Support Module.

The TestScript resource is used to define tests that can be executed against one or more FHIR clients and servers. The TestScript resource will typically contain

  • a list of fixtures (required resources used in the tests)
  • setup procedures
  • a suite of thematically related tests
  • teardown procedures

For example, one TestScript might feature a set of tests focusing on searching Patients and validating the Bundle responses. The fixtures for such a test would contain a list of Patient resources that are required for the test to complete successfully. The setup procedures create the fixtures on the FHIR server being tested. A series of tests execute search operations with various search parameter combinations and evaluate the client requests and server responses for conformance and expected results. The teardown procedures could then clean up (delete) the fixtures on FHIR server that were created during the setup procedures.

The purpose of the TestScript is to encode in an executable representation tests that can be used

  1. to support end-to-end testing of business case workflow, such as patient coordination
  2. within an Ecosystem or Community of Systems-Under-Test
  3. to determine whether given FHIR clients and servers adhere and are conformant to the FHIR specification
  4. to determine whether the capabilities of two or more FHIR implementations capabilities are compatible and interoperable according to the FHIR specification
It might not be possible to fully automate the latter goal (especially with regards to business rules that might ride on top of different implementations), however the tests should be able to determine whether two servers support the operations, value sets, profiles, and extensions to exchange FHIR Resources; for example, the request sent and response returned from a Patient $everything operation.

Note to Implementers: At this time the scope and usage of TestScript resources is focused on the FHIR specification. The TestScript resource scope and usage may expand in the future to include support for other HL7 specifications such as C-CDA and V2 as HL7 aligns these specifications with FHIR-based nomenclature and definitions. Future support may also additionally include non-HL7 specifications that leverage the FHIR specification such as IHE profiles.

The TestScript resource should NOT be used to represent Clinical tests, Prescriptions, or any other Healthcare related concept. The TestScript resource is an infrastructure support resource used to represent standardized tests to determine a FHIR implementation's level of adherence to the FHIR specification.

TestScript is a part of the conformance framework and is used to validate the behavior of FHIR systems, specifically their correct implementation of StructureDefinition, ValueSet, OperationDefinition, CapabilityStatement and other FHIR resources that govern system behavior. TestScript instances may be included as part of ImplementationGuides to help define and test the desired behavior of systems that choose to comply with the implementation guide.

The following resources represent the FHIR conformance framework that are used to express the expected behavior of a FHIR compliant system:

The TestScript resource is designed to establish testing as a first class artifact within the FHIR specification. This resource allows defining a suite of tests that can be executed on one or more FHIR servers and clients.

Implementers should be familiar with the testing concepts and descriptions found in Testing FHIR before working with this resource.
