What is FHIR?

FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) is a standard for exchanging healthcare information electronically, and it has been promoted by NHS England / NHSX as the strategic standard for APIs in the NHS.

The core FHIR standard is an international standard defined by HL7 - click here for the documentation of the FHIR standard.

Graphnet CareCentric FHIR APIs

We have adopted the NHS-specific CareConnect profiles of FHIR for accessing the data in the shared care record, and have implemented APIs that conform to the CareConnect API guidance for ReST APIs using FHIR.

We are delivering support for each of the CareConnect profiles and interactions in a rolling programme – for details of the FHIR interactions currentlty supported, please see our FHIR Implementation Guide
