FHIR Products at NHS Digital

NHS Digital makes extensive use of the HL7 FHIR standard. It does so across the different paradigms that FHIR supports, including:

  • FHIR ReSTful APIs
  • FHIR Documents
  • FHIR Messages

NHS Digital makes use of a consistent set of FHIR profiles across its products set.

There are additional requirements when using FHIR to describe vital signs observations, specifically with regards to the use of SNOMED CT. These can be viewed here.
