Fix FHIR Subscriptions

With 1upHealth, you can "subscribe" to a query using a FHIR Subscription Resource. This means that you can be notified for a creation or update event for any FHIR Resource that matches a FHIR query. The reported bug for EHR data import has been resolved. To learn how to set up FHIR subscriptions, visit here.

Feature Updates to API Collection

There have been updates made to 2 of the api's within the 1upHealth API Collection:
  1. 1.
    Create New User
  2. 2.
    Generate New Authorization Code for Existing User
For both of these api's, the app_user_id, client_id, and client_secret should now be specified within the request body and these values are no longer accepted as request parameters in the url. Sending data via the request body is much more secure than sending data as request parameters limiting the unnecessary exposure of data.
Please see these updates within the Postman Collection found at link
