FHIR Applications We Will Build

Below are the applications we will be building during the FHIR Bootcamp. We will build 1 application every 2 weeks.

Pre-requisites:

  1. Basic English proficiency.
  2. Basic Javascript.
  3. (Optional) Basic Java.

1. Patient Management Application

Module 1

We will start with: A live FHIR Server

We will build: A Patient Manager application that does the following:

  • List the patients on a FHIR server, displaying their name, gender and date of birth
  • Create patients by submitting a form with the patient's name, gender, date of birth and phone number. Proper validation needs to be done on all fields.
  • Allow update of all patients who are on the FHIR server by opening them on the same form and updating details.
  • Search patients by their name or phone number.

This application will be built in Javascript. The frontend framework can be chosen by the candidate. The sample application in the tutorials will be built using Svelte.

Concepts covered:

  • FHIR REST Paradigm and How It Works
  • FHIR Resource Structure and Validation
  • FHIR CRUDS API operations
  • FHIR Search parameters

2. SMART on FHIR Standalone Patient App on Epic

Module 2

We will start with: Epic FHIR Sandbox Credentials

We will build: A SMART on FHIR Application where the Patient logs into Epic and pulls all of their data. We will cover the following:

  • A UI for the patient to connect to their Epic account.
  • Display a Patient welcome screen with their name, gender, date of birth and identifier.
  • List all of the Patient's Medications.
  • List all of the Patient's Lab Reports.
  • List all of the Patient's Vital Signs.

This application will be built in Javascript. The frontend framework can be chosen by the candidate. The sample application in the tutorials will be built using Svelte.

Concepts covered:

  • What is SMART on FHIR?
  • OAuth2 and Authentication Basics
  • FHIR USCDI Profile and Resources
  • SMART on FHIR Authentication Scopes and Context
  • SMART on FHIR Standalone Patient Launch
  • Authorised FHIR REST API access and limitations

3. SMART on FHIR Practitioner App with Cerner

Module 3

We will start with: Cerner FHIR Sandbox Credentials

We will build: A SMART on FHIR Application where the Practitioner launches the app from the EHR and views alerts about specific issues. We will cover the following:

  • A UI for the application to automatically log in to the Cerner account if launched.
  • Display a Patient banner with their name, gender, date of birth and identifier of the patient context launched.
  • List all of the Patient's Vital Signs.
  • Create new Vital Sign entries - At least pulse rate and blood pressure.
  • Analyse the Vital Signs and provide alerts if any of them are abnormal.

This application will be built in Javascript. The frontend framework can be chosen by the candidate. The sample application in the tutorials will be built using Svelte.

Concepts covered:

  • What is SMART on FHIR EHR Launch?
  • Understanding SMART Practitioner Scopes and User Context
  • The SMART on FHIR Launch Token
  • Selecting FHIR Resources of Importance
  • Authorised FHIR REST API access as a Practitioner

4. SMART on FHIR Backend Application with Epic

Module 4

We will start with: Epic FHIR Sandbox Credentials

We will build: A SMART on FHIR Backend Application where the application automatically pulls data for certain patients at regular intervals and sends notifications via Email if there are abnormalities.

  • Initiate this automation every 24 hours.
  • Authenticate the application with the JWT credentials.
  • Initiate a Bulk API call for a given patient group.
  • Get all lab reports of patients in the group.
  • Analyse the lab reports and send an email alert to a specific email ID if there are any abnormal lab findings.

Concepts covered:

  • What is FHIR Bulk API?
  • Introduction to FHIR Groups and Cohorts
  • FHIR Bulk API Flow and Mechanism
  • SMART on FHIR Backend Authentication Flow
  • OAuth2 and JWT RFC7523 Profile
  • Bulk API Request/Response with Backend Authorization

This application will be built using a backend programming language. The server framework and language can be the candidate's choice - Java, NodeJS, and Python are preferred. The sample application in the tutorials will be built using NodeJS and Express.

5. FHIR Facade on SQL Database

Module 5

We will start with: A Postgres database with Patient data

We will build: A FHIR API should be built on top of the Postgres database using HAPI FHIR library to do the following:

  • Display a valid CapabilityStatement
  • List All Patients in the database via FHIR API
  • List All Observations in the database via FHIR API
  • Get Patient Details in the database via FHIR API
  • Get Observation Details in the database via FHIR API
  • Support JSON (and optionally XML) format

This application will be built in Java and the HAPI FHIR Java library. The tutorials will use Maven, Jetty and HAPI FHIR Plain Server to build the application.

Concepts covered:

  • What is a FHIR Facade?
  • Translating FHIR Server REST APIs to Database Calls
  • Translating FHIR Bundle REST Operations to Database Calls
  • Implementing Authorization on FHIR Facacde
  • Drawbacks and Alternatives to FHIR Facades
