About

HL7 CanadaWelcome to the Canadian FHIR implementation community forum. The purpose of this forum is to collaborate on areas of FHIR implementation that will advance implementations across Canada, while contributing to the global adoption of FHIR. The objective is to develop pan-Canadian approaches to constraining and extending FHIR. The community has been active since January 2016 and has been growing ever since!

The community has several streams of activity:

Sheridan Cook created a new discussion in FHIR® Implementations

Hey folks - as discussed on the 04/12 and 04/19 we are pursuing a tweak to the Simplifier project url to provide better clarity and differentiation from the CA Core. We have been going through the process of scrubbing use of Core from the guide and pages for 12+ months (outside of the note around the relationship between bases and cores) to try to reduce community confusion. Note that project urls are different than canonical urls. Simplifier project url is simply how you find the details on Simplifier and can be changed at any time. We will be migrating shortly from https://simplifier.net/canadianfhirbaselineprofilesca-core to https://simplifier.net/cabaseline and are asking any folks who have bookmarks or pointers to update the link to the new project url.
