This page lists FHIR servers that are publicly available for testing. In order to avoid spam etc, the servers are generally password protected. A contact is provided to get a password.


Note that these servers are testing servers. They may be sporadically unavailable, and as the FHIR specification is a moving target, they may not always implement the latest version, or do so correctly.

  • - Ewout's test server (previously The actual service endpoint is at
    • Supports all resource types, all operations, xml + json
    • implementation details: C# reference implementation, WebApi 2.0 library, Mongo DB for storage and search.
    • Server is running on AppHarbor, Mongo at MongoLab, and storage of binary is done on Amazon S3
    • Available in the open source - see [[2]]
    • DSTU 2:
  • - AEGIS WildFHIR - DSTU2 (v1.0.2-7202)
    • Recently updated to support the DSTU2 (v1.0.2-7202) current version of FHIR
    • Supports all resource types and operations, including validate, excluding transaction; better support for search; support for conditional read, create/update return preference
    • Based on the FHIR DSTU2 (v1.0.2-7202) Java reference implementation; hosted on RedHat WildFly 8.1.0
    • Also available using SSL at
    • Test client interface:
  • - HealthConnex - DSTU2
    • DSTU-2 (2015Sep) version of FHIR
    • Supports all resource types, but not all operations
    • .NET (C#) implementation on SQL Server Azure
    • No support for search chaining or profiles at present
  • - HealthConnex - DSTU2 (2015May)
    • DSTU-2 (2015May) May ballot version of FHIR
    • Supports all resource types, but not all operations
    • .NET (C#) implementation on SQL Server Azure
    • No support for Tags/search chaining or profiles at present
  • GNU Health FHIR server
    • Supports read, validate and search for Patient, DiagnosticReport, Practitioner, Procedure, Observation, Condition, FamilyHistory
    • DSTU1
    • A Flask app. It's connected to the GNU Health community server database. Consequently, it's possible to create and update patients, doctors, etc. through the GNU Health frontend and the changes should be reflected on the FHIR server (indirect write support, I suppose).
    • I think our goal is to use the FHIR server as an adapter for non-GNU Health EHRs and users, since we already have synchronization between instances. But, there are other interesting possibilites, too.
    • I'm updating the code frequently and it's still in the dev stages (e.g., adding new resources frequently).
    • Documentation is here:
  • - CSIRO's Ontoserver - DSTU2 (2015Sep)
    • Supports Terminology Services
    • ValueSet, ConceptMap read, create, update, minimal search
    • $expand, $validate-code, and $translate
