Find place to send referral to

Using queries against the healthCareService resource, locate the recipient of the service. Assume an organization for this scenario

Create Referral

Against the target server Create a ReferralRequest resource, then a Task resource with the Task.owner pointing to an organization and the Task.subject referring to the ReferralRequest. The task.status will be 'created'

  • Is this correct?*

Success Criteria:
Bonus point:

Receive Referral

The recipient of the referral assigns the task to a grader (by setting the owner ) & sets the status to ready

Could locate by direct query against task or use an operation

Grade Referral

Client: Poll for responses and display appropriately

Cancel Referral
