A brief introduction to getting started with the FHIR End of Life API.
Important: This site is under active development by NHS Digital and is intended to provide all the technical resources you need to successfully develop the FHIR End of Life APIs. This project is being developed using an agile methodology so iterative updates to content will be added on a regular basis.
Warning: This site is provided for information only and is intended for those engaged with NHS Digital on the development of the FHIR End of Life API. It is advised not to develop against these specifications until a formal announcement has been made.
This project specifically supports the development of a digital end of life care interoperability capability, which uses a clinically-assured information standard SCCI 1580 to support the sharing of end of life care records. It supports the development and a pilot implementation of the end of life care interoperability API which will allow sharing and updating of a digital end of life care record. This work is based on a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) aimed at addressing the Urgent and Emergency Care use case.
