MDHT and FHIR Profiles [message #1742704] Tue, 06 September 2016 17:03 Go to next message

I created a FHIR profile using the Furore Forge tool. When I tried to load it into the MDHT FHIR StructuredDefinition I encountered at least two issues.

  1. The URI Furore uses is whereas the URI MDHT uses is

  2. MDHT can't seem to load valueString. In the XML saved by Furore:
          <extension url="">
            <valueString value="Contact" />
          <path value="" />
          <max value="0" />

Is this supposed to work?

Hi Geoffry,

The current Furore Forge tool only supports FHIR DSTU2 profiles, with some kind of workaround for saving STU-3 profiles, but only if they are based on DSUT-2 resources. So I assume the profile you created is a DSTU-2 StructureDefinition?

The MDHT FHIR profile tooling is designed for STU-3, no plans to create a fork that would support old DSTU-2 StructureDefintion and ValueSet. The current code was updated and tested with a FHIR build from mid-May 2016. I will get it updated for the Sept 2016 ballot version of STU-3 prior to the HL7 meeting in Baltimore. As part of this update, I will also import all HL7 FHIR resources, and profiles and update these models in the MDHT git repo.

If your profile is STU-3, or you believe it is, you can validate a profile using Grahame's stu3 server by POSTing the profile to StructureDefinition with $expand operation. This will return error messages if the profile is not valid, and if it is valid will return a profile with the 'snapshot' added. But it will not add the profile to his server. I use this for testing profiles generated from MDHT FHIR UML models.

Thanks for you question!
