FHIR Message Sender by Eckher

An online client for FHIR messaging.

FHIR Message Sender is a web-based tool for sending FHIR messages to FHIR servers.

What is FHIR messaging?

In FHIR messaging, applications exchange messages triggered by events in the source systems. Technically, the messages are FHIR Bundles of type message carrying a collection of FHIR resources.

Here is an example of a FHIR message Bundle:

{
  "resourceType": "Bundle",
  "id": "388a86c8-2544-46d6-bcdb-289627ce5afb",
  "type": "message",
  "timestamp": "2022-11-01T09:21:11.764Z",
  "entry": [
    {
      "fullUrl": "urn:uuid:f80930be-add3-4e35-89d5-7b0e3f08e868",
      "resource": {
        "resourceType": "MessageHeader",
        "id": "f80930be-add3-4e35-89d5-7b0e3f08e868",
        "event": {
          "code": "http://example.org/fhir/CodeSystem/MessageEventCodes|example",
          "system": "http://example.org/fhir/CodeSystem/MessageEventCodes"
        }
      }
    },
    {
      "fullUrl": "http://example.org/fhir/Patient/12345",
      "resource": {
        "resourceType": "Patient",
        "id": "12345",
        "name": [
          {
            "use": "official",
            "family": "Doe",
            "given": [
              "John"
            ]
          }
        ],
        "gender": "male"
      }
    }
  ]
}
