The New Zealand FHIR Registry is the home for the HL7® FHIR® artefacts that are most important to an interoperable digital health ecosystem in Aotearoa New Zealand. Software developers can freely share and reuse the FHIR profiles and implementation guides posted here.

The registry supports the development of FHIR APIs for national digital services such as the National Health Index (NHI), Health Provider Index (HPI) and National Immunisation Solution (NIS), as well as Hira, the national health information platform.

The FHIR NZ Base implementation guide is also published here.

And all FHIR artefacts endorsed by the Health Information Standards Organisation (HISO) will be published in the registry.

The registry is hosted on the platform provided by Netherlands company Firely. Learn more about the tool in the Simplifier documentation library. Our registry setup follows the example of the Canadian FHIR Registry and the United Kingdom’s NHS Digital FHIR Registry.

Developers can use FHIR Shorthand command line tools to create and upload definitions or use the Forge GUI tool. The registry will be integrated with the NZ Health Terminology Service and HISO standards resource centre.

The registry is co-governed by Te Whatu Ora and HL7 New Zealand. We invite everyone’s participation.

The Sandbox project is the place to get started. The Community Content project is then where you can share your work and collaborate with others.
