FHIR R4 Commons Library

(0 reviews)
Set of data types that are used for the FHIR R4 resource elements.



This asset is a component of MuleSoft Accelerator for Healthcare.

MuleSoft Accelerator for Healthcare enables healthcare providers to unlock critical patient data to build a patient 360 within Salesforce Health Cloud, faster and easier than ever before. The solution includes pre-built APIs, connectors, integration templates, and a prescriptive end-to-end reference architecture to bring patient demographics information and COVID-19 test results from any EHR into Health Cloud using HL7 V2 or FHIR standards.

The solution also provides a library of United States Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI) and FHIR R4 resources to help healthcare developers adhere to interoperability needs and jumpstart the development of healthcare digital transformation initiatives.

Use case covered

The FHIR specification defines a set of data types that are used for the resource elements. There are four categories of data types:

  • Simple / primitive types, which are single elements with a primitive value
  • General-purpose complex types, which are re-usable clusters of elements
  • Metadata types: A set of types for use with metadata resources
  • Special purpose data types - defined elsewhere in the specification for specific usages

This library contains the definition of these data types, which are reused across FHIR R4 resources.
