Requirements for FHIR endpoints to declare their capabilities
All servers offering a FHIR ReST API endpoint MUST publish a FHIR conformance / capability statement (in the form of a Conformance or CapabilityStatement resource) at the root URL of their endpoint.
- For DSTU2 this is as per: http://hl7.org/fhir/DSTU2/conformance.html
- And for STU3 this is as per: https://www.hl7.org/fhir/capabilitystatement.html
FHIR-CONF-02: All national FHIR STU3 Capability Statements MUST conform to the NHSDigital-CapabilityStatement-1 Profile.
The DRAFT profile is published on the NHS FHIR Reference Server and the profile design document defines the best practice rules for profiling NHS Digital national STU3 FHIR Capability Statements for server mode ‘requirements’ and ‘instance’ purposes.
