Terminologies Recipe


Terminology is a fundamental concept within Healthcare IT and within HL7 FHIR.  interopiO™ provides an HL7 FHIR Terminology server as part of interopiO's CDR.  Using the interopiO Terminology API, you can:

  • Create or reference a code system
  • Create or reference a value set
  • Record data using pre-coordinated codes
  • Record data using post-coordinated expressions
  • Record data using multiple local or standard code systems (translations)
  • Expand a value set
  • Validate a code
  • Look up a display term for a code
  • Translate a code from one value set to another
  • Maintain a client-side transitive closure table on subsumption relationships
  • Test subsumption between concepts
  • For a set of property/concept pairs, return the set of concepts for the requested properties
  • Map data between different terminologies
  • Declare the capabilities of a terminology service
