Quickstart using the Cloud Console

This page shows you how to create a dataset and a DICOM, FHIR, or HL7v2 store using the Cloud Healthcare API with Google Cloud Console.

Before you begin

  1. Sign in to your Google Cloud account. If you're new to Google Cloud, create an account to evaluate how our products perform in real-world scenarios. New customers also get $300 in free credits to run, test, and deploy workloads.
  2. In the Google Cloud Console, on the project selector page, select or create a Google Cloud project.

    Go to project selector

  3. Make sure that billing is enabled for your Cloud project. Learn how to confirm that billing is enabled for your project.

  4. Enable the Cloud Healthcare API.

    Enable the API

Create a dataset

Datasets are the basic containers that hold healthcare data in Google Cloud.

  1. In the Cloud Console, go to the Datasets page.

    Go to the Datasets page

  2. Click Create dataset.
  3. Choose a dataset identifier that's unique in your project and region. If the identifier is not unique, the dataset creation fails.
  4. Choose the region where the dataset permanently resides and then click Create.

The new dataset appears in the list.

Creating and managing DICOM, FHIR, and HL7v2 stores

Clean up

To avoid incurring charges to your Google Cloud account for the resources used in this tutorial, you can clean up the resources you created on Google Cloud. If you created a new project for this tutorial, follow the steps in Delete the project. Otherwise, follow the steps in Delete the dataset and data store.

Delete the project

  1. In the Cloud Console, go to the Manage resources page.

    Go to Manage resources

  2. In the project list, select the project that you want to delete, and then click Delete.
  3. In the dialog, type the project ID, and then click Shut down to delete the project.

Delete the dataset and data store

If you no longer need the dataset and data store created in this quickstart, you can delete the dataset. Deleting a dataset permanently deletes the dataset and any FHIR, HL7v2, or DICOM stores it contains.

To delete a dataset:

  1. In the Cloud Console, go to the Datasets page.

    Go to the Datasets page

  2. Select the dataset to delete.
  3. Click Delete, type the identifier for the dataset to confirm, and then click Delete.
