The search functionality built into FHIR makes it a very attractive option for developers looking to integrate discrete data directly into their applications. Using a simple RESTful syntax, you can find all manners of data in a consistent way, ranging from simple to very complex use cases.
The mechanics of a FHIR search query are simple:
- 1.The client requests data using the following HTTP syntax:
GET [baseUrl]/[resourceType]?[optional search parameters].
- 2.The server then returns a FHIR Bundle resource, which is a container resource containing the matching search results made up of individual FHIR resources.
The pages below provide an overview for the ways you can search for data using the 1up FHIR server. To learn more, visit the FHIR Search page.
