Default Updated: FHIR: Request for Feedback

UPDATE 2018-06-06: The updated FHIR Connector extension has been released alongside Mirth Connect 3.6! More information here: https://www.mirthcorp.com/community/...d.php?t=218326

In case you didn't know, we currently have a FHIR Technology Preview that you can download and try out for free. It includes a source connector (FHIR Listener) that acts as a FHIR server. It handles the Capability Statement automatically, and will parse incoming requests to supply useful information in the source map. It also stands up a configurable website for displaying resources and other information, and includes some other helper/utility classes to help streamline your implementation.

We're working on updates to this, and would like some feedback from the community! Help us out by answering any of the following questions, or feel free to give general feedback or feature requests.

How many of you are using FHIR, either with or without Mirth Connect? If you're not using it, are you planning to?

What are you using it (or are wanting to use it) for? Any specific use-cases you can share?

For those of you using the FHIR Technology Preview, what is your honest feedback? What are we doing right, and what can we improve upon? Any specific gotchas or pain points we can iron out?

Among other things, here are some general updates/improvements under consideration:
  • Support for STU3 (R3)

  • Add a destination (FHIR Sender) connector
    • Similar to the Web Service Sender, this should have the ability to download capabilities from the server and display supported resources/interactions in drop-down menus

  • Add a graphical UI builder for FHIR resources

  • Add a dedicated FHIR data type that supports both XML and JSON

  • More documentation and examples!

Thank you in advance!

Always include what Mirth Connect version you're working with. Also include (if applicable) the code you're using and full stacktraces for errors (use CODE tags). Posting your entire channel is helpful as well; make sure to scrub any PHI/passwords first.

- You just bar.
