UK Core Implementation Guide Current Draft Build
Project Description and Scope.
The UK Core Implementation Guide as a project aims to provide UK wide FHIR implementation guidance that has applicability across jurisdictions and care settings.
The guidance includes:
- FHIR Resource profiles and extensions
- FHIR Terminology components including ValueSets and CodeSystems
- Other general guidance useful to FHIR implementers in the UK
The guidance does not form the basis for a completely described deployable service in and of itself but is the basis from which other FHIR implementation guides can be derived.
The content is relevant to the UK as a whole (4 Nations) but minor individual nation specifics will be allowed. Any individual specifics will be made clear which nations they apply.
