Welcome to the HL7 FHIR Chemotherapy IG Wiki!

The FHIR Chemotherapy Implementation Guide (IG) helps to ensure that chemotherapy-related medical information is properly represented in HL7 FHIR, and addresses the needs of ordering chemotherapy in various scenarios and countries. This wiki page is for facilitation of ongoing discussions.

Project Information

At the January 2017 Working Group Meeting in San Antonio, TX, participants convened to discuss the creation of a group dedicated to representing chemotherapy-related medical information in FHIR. There was quite a bit of interest among members from many different countries, and we decided to set up an international chemotherapy implementation guide to address this need.


Please subscribe to the "chemotherapy IG" stream on to get involved and start receiving the most up-to-date information about the project!
You can also send comments to the stream via e-mail at The e-mail body will become the stream message and the e-mail subject will become the stream topic.
