New open resources for developers
We have updated the section “For Developers” with four new open InteropEHRate services under the Reference Implementation of Services and Applications:
InteropEHRate Health Services (IHS): The IHS component aims to be a single access point for all the InteropEHRate translation, conversion, and information extraction services. It is implemented as an API layer supporting the different requests received by the InteropEHRate HCP Application and by the R2D library, for automatic translation, extraction, and conversion of health data. For more details regarding conversion, translation and information extraction features, the reader can refer to the relative GitLab projects.
Translation Service: The InteropEHRate Translation Service is included within the IHS project. It is responsible for the automatic translation of health data initially provided as input, represented using local natural languages (such as Italian or French), and then converted in output into English, as the main international language, or into another local language if it is required (for example for data to be displayed within a hospital in a different country).
Conversion Service: The InteropEHRate Conversion Service is included within the IHS project. It is responsible for the automatic conversion of health data initially provided as input, represented using local data standards (such as CDA or SUMEHR), and then converted in output into FHIR international data standards.
FHIR Export: This component is integrated within the IHS and it is responsible for the creation of FHIR resources depending on the different kinds of query allowed. The FHIR Export service can produce FHIR Bundles both homogeneous (including a list of resources having the same type) and heterogeneous (including a set of resources of different types, representing for example a Patient Summary record).
