FHIR R4 TestScript API

(0 reviews)
A structured set of tests against a FHIR server or client implementation to determine compliance against the FHIR specification.



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 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 TestScript resource is used to define tests that can be executed on one or more FHIR servers. The TestScript resource would typically contain

  • a list of fixtures (required resources used in the tests)
  • setup procedures
  • a suite of thematically related tests
  • teardown procedures

For example, one TestScript might feature a set of tests focusing on searching Patients and validating the Bundle responses. The fixtures for such a test would contain a list of Patient resources that are required for the test to complete successfully. The setup procedures create the fixtures on the FHIR server being tested. A series of tests execute various search parameters and search for the fixtures in the results. The teardown procedures would then clean up (delete) the fixtures on FHIR server that were created during the setup procedures.

The purpose of the TestScript is to encode in an executable representation tests that can be used to

  1. determine whether a given FHIR server adheres to the FHIR specification and
  2. determine whether two or more FHIR servers implement capabilities in a compatible or interoperable manner.

It might not be possible to fully automate the latter goal (especially with regards to business rules that might ride on top of different implementations), however the tests should be able to determine whether two servers support the operations, value sets, profiles, and extensions to exchange Bundles of Resources (such as returned from the Patient $everything operation).

This API uses FHIR R4 TestScript Library.
