Standards Development

The goal

To adapt the HL7® FHIR® standard and create a library of profiles (resources and interaction patterns) that implementers can adopt to simplify integration and interoperability within UK health and social care.

This section covers the establishment of a set of specifications of resource profiles and FHIR APIs, for the purposes of communication across different clinical settings, referred to as “Care-Connect”.


A Library of HL7® FHIR® resource profiles and interaction patterns (APIs).

Once having established a consensus with INTEROPen members these will be submitted for clinical validation and feedback by a wider group of stakeholders, the lead clinical validation organisation being the PRSB.


The methodology is evolving and is held on GitHub.
