Finally, one of the major tasks for the summer (Project migration) was completed and now we can start work with the SMART application.
Overview of SMART on FHIR :
SMART on FHIR is a set of open specifications to integrate apps with Electronic Health Records, portals, Health Information Exchanges, and other Health IT systems.
The SMART application we’ll be creating will serve as a use-case for OpenMRS Community.
When an OpenMRS user launches the SMART app, we’ll get a “launch request” notification. Just ask for the permissions you need using OAuth scopes like
patient/*.read and once you’re authorized you’ll have an access token with the permissions you need – including access to clinical data and context like:
- which patient is in-context in the OpenMRS
- which encounter is in-context in the OpeMRS
- the physical location of the OpenMRS user
- access to a patient data using FHIR module
SMART is a tech stack for health apps. More information about this can be found here.
