To pilot the Argonaut Questionnaire Implementation Guide

The goal of the Argonaut Questionnaire Project is to develop guidance to support interchange of:

  1. Simple forms based on FHIR Version 3.0.1 and specifically the Questionnaire and QuestionnaireResponse resources. This implementation guide provides implementers with FHIR RESTful APIs and guidance to create, use and share between organizations standard assessment forms and the assessment responses.
  2. Adaptive Questionnaires(1) such as PROMIS forms using a stateless model. This implementation guide provides the basic framework for using Questionnaire and QuestionnaireResponse to preserve the state of the Questionnaire as the client retrieves questions from a remote adaptive questionnaire service.
