Return to Sept 2017 Proposals

Devices on FHIR

Submitting WG/Project/Implementer Group

The Devices on FHIR (DoF) initiative, composed of device informatics experts and organizations from HL7 Health Care Devices WG, HIMSS / PCH Alliance (Continua) and IHE.


The DoF initiative has been focused on profiling key core FHIR Resources (Device, DeviceComponent, DeviceMetric & Observation) to represent ISO/IEEE 11073 semantic content. The work which was begun at the Madrid 2017 May FHIR Connectathon will be continued in the September 2017 FHIR Connectathon with an eye to mature the StructureDefinitions and Implementation Guides. Focus will be on using the Furore Forge and Simplifier project tools.

Additionally, there will be work on formalizing the terminology server support for ISO/IEEE 11073 nomenclature, based on work that Grahame Grieve has started + NIST tooling.
