FHIR conformance statement

FHIR stores within the Cloud Healthcare API support a subset of the FHIR STU3 (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, Release 3 - Standard for Trial Use) specification published by HL7 (Health Level 7 International). In general, the server's capability statement indicates parts of the specification that are supported.

These include:

Areas that are not currently supported include:

In general, missing or non-standard API functionality at this stage of development should not necessarily be interpreted as a final design decision.

Some areas where the API contains operations outside of the published specification include:

  • The FHIR gRPC API offers an RPC interface for FHIR using the gRPC framework. It is nonstandard, under development, and does not support all FHIR methods.
  • The FHIR store configuration includes an option to notify a user-specified Cloud Pub/Sub topic for all changes to resources in the store. This notification mechanism is common across all Cloud Healthcare API stores, and is not intended as a replacement for FHIR Subscription functionality.
  • The FHIR store export operation to Cloud Storage destinations offers only a bulk export of the entire store. It is not an implementation of the FHIR Bulk Data draft specification.
  • The FHIR store import operation is not defined in the specification.
  • The Resource-purge operation that removes historical versions of resources is not defined in the specification. This API could change in the future if the standards process or other FHIR implementations converge on a different API method for this use case.
