This wiki page contains information related to a set of activities initiated March 2014 to facilitate contributions by PCWG members for continuous improvements of FHIR clinical DSTU resources, and to develop new FHIR clinical resources to meet stakeholder requirements.


FHIR® – Fast Health Interoperable Resources ( – is a next generation standards framework created by HL7. FHIR combines the best features of HL7’s Version 2, Version 3 and CDA® product lines while leveraging the latest web standards and applying a tight focus on implementability.

FHIR solutions are built from a set of modular components called “Resources”. These resources can easily be assembled into working systems that solve real world clinical and administrative problems at a fraction of the price of existing alternatives. FHIR is suitable for use in a wide variety of contexts – mobile phone apps, cloud communications, EHR-based data sharing, server communication in large institutional healthcare providers, and much more

A number of FHIR clinical resources were developed, passed ballots and reached DSTU status in January 2014.

PCWG works closely with FHIR team to provide clinical and clinical informatics (and where appropriate, engineering) inputs to help continuous improvement of these resources

PCWG members also work closely with FHIR team to develop new FHIR clinical resources

PCWG FHIR Conference Calls and Meeting Minutes

PCWG FHIR Resource Projects and Discussion Topics

PCWG is collaborating with FHIR team to develop a set of PCWG domain specific FHIR resources that are intended to meet the requirements of its stakeholders.

FHIR Clinical Resources Discussion Topics

FHIR Clinician Connectathon

The FHIR Clinician Connectathon are a set of clinician led activities designed to test the clinical validity, accuracy, usuability ... of FHIR Clinical Resources

The idea was suggested by the FHIR team to co-chairs of Patient Care Workgroup. It was well received and a small "FHIR Clinician Connectathon Group" was form.

The following link provides more details about this initiative.

The FHIR Clinical Connectathon has been renamed to FHIR Clinician Connectathon as of November 2014

FHIR Clinical Resources

These clinical resources are under stewardship of PCWG:

1. Adverse Reaction (
2. Allergy Intolerance (
3. Care Plan (
4. Condition (
5. Family History (
6. Procedure (
7. Questionnaire (
8. QuestionnairAnswer (

Other Clinical-Related FHIR Resources: (under stewardship of other HL7 WGs)

FHIR Processes & Tooling Learning Resources

The FHIR team has produced a number of resources that are useful for those who are interested in learning about FHIR, to explore and develop domain specific FHIR resources

Here are the links to some very useful resources:

  • Creating Examples in FHIR:

  • HL7/FHIR and openEHR joint review of "Adverse Reaction" clinical model
- HL7/FHIR and openEHR have set up a joint review process to review an "Adverse Reaction" clinical model (archetype)
- The steps for signing up and review through the openEHR clinical knowledge manager (CKM) collaborative environment are summerised in this ppt file:
- openEHR CKM "Adverse Reaction" clinical model review sign up and review process steps
