HL7 v3 and FHIR Interactions

The table below shows the mapping of HL7 v3 Interactions to FHIR API calls, responses and messages. Note the FHIR messages are designed to flow from end to end and are not designed around EPS interactions (i.e. the Prescription Release Respones are very similar to the original Parent Prescription).
