Background For Scheduling

This track is based upon Argonaut Scheduling project and the Argonaut Scheduling Implementation Guide CI Build. It is based upon the FHIR 3.0.1 Standard.

For additional background, review the Appointment resource especially the section on the "usual" workflow and a discussion on statuses, and what would be expected.

Submitting WG/Project/Implementer Group

The Argonaut Project


The Argonaut Scheduling Project is a vendor agnostic specification providing FHIR RESTful APIs and guidance for access to and booking of appointments for patients by both patient and practitioner end users. This specification is based on FHIR Version 3.0.1 and specifically the Scheduling and Appointment resources.

Provider or 3rd Party consumer application (Client)

An application that should be used by an end user (e.g., patient or practitioner) to search for information to support creating a referral, and can book an appointment on a client's behalf

FHIR Server (EHR)

A Server that that processes appointment availability booking requests and allocates either participants, or times to these requests.

If creating a client application, this track should require minimal work in advance of the connectathon, though at least a bit of playing is recommended. If creating a server, advanced preparation will be required. To somewhat limit the effort involved we have provided a simple set Argo Scheduling Sprint Test Data to get you started. The corresponding FHIR resources for the test data has been loaded on the Telstra FHIR test server and can be fetched using the FHIR API. They are also available as FHIR bundles in xml format.


See the Argonaut Scheduling Implementation Guide CI Build Use Cases:

... and specifically these transactions

  • Appointment Availability Search Operation
  • Appointment booking Operation
  • Search for booked Appointment
  • Cancels or cancel/reschedules
  • Prefetching and updating Slots


The supporting TestScripts and corresponding fixtures have been committed to the FHIR documents Github repository at:

Please note that the available TestScripts test the Typical (Work)flow of statuses as described in the FHIR specification Schedule resource type page.
