The FHIR profiles created by INTEROPen members reflect UK standards. However, it is important to understand the curation process used is there to only extend the profiles where necessary to fit local requirements. The curation process takes the FHIR STU3 resource definitions from HL7 International and reviews them to understand where they need to be changed to reflect NHS requirements in England.

This curation process includes not only the NHS but suppliers too, and it is in suppliers’ interests to keep them as close to the international version as possible.

How different are the UK FHIR profiles from the international standards?
