FHIR Tools Registry
What tools are available / recommended to support FHIR development & implementation?
The [FHIR specification itself includes] several tools - schema, xref-faq-46 validation services, and reference platforms that implement the specification for various common development platforms. These tools are provided for implementer convenience, but there is not requirement to use them; other platforms can be used.
This list summarizes tools that are commonly used in the FHIR development team, and by attendees at the past connectathons:
