FHIR (or Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) is a standard for exchanging electronic health records. It describes elements (called resources) and an API (or application programming interface) for implementation of the same. FHIR Narratives are human-readable representations of resources.
The project aims at adding support for FHIR Narratives to the FHIR2 Module of OpenMRS. Following are the overall objectives of the project:
- Create FHIR narratives for all resources defined by OpenMRS FHIR module.
- Develop a framework to support implementation-driven overrides for FHIR narratives.
- Add support for localization of the generated narratives.
