Prescription centre FHIR interface
Prescription centre is a national Kanta service in which citizens' electronic prescriptions and electronic dispensations are saved. Main interfaces in production are based on HL7 V3 Medical Records messaging and HL7 V3 CDA R2 documents. For metadata search of the prescriptions has been implemented search operation based on FHIR custom operations and FHIR Medication*-resources. FHIR interface includes only metadata of the prescription although the data content of the metadata includes a large amount of information of the actual prescription. For this interface there is no Sandbox environment. Kanta services has produced example FHIR resource instances for demo purpose and these instances can be made available through a server of another party participating in the demo.
Other FHIR interfaces in the future
In the future there is a plan to offer data of the Kanta services in FHIR format. This data can be for example diagnoses (problems), lab results, vital sign from Patient data archive service. Kanta services has produced example FHIR resource instances for demo purpose and these instances can be made available through a server of another party participating in the demo.
