Common Kodjin FHIR Profiler use cases

The Kodjin FHIR Profiler is a tool for configuring an FHIR server. It helps medical business analysts and IT specialists working on complicated healthcare projects to streamline the FHIR profile creation process.

The most common use cases include

Rapid authoring and editing of many FHIR profiles

Building a flawless FHIR data model

Spotting and fixing errors in profiles

Why we created the Kodjin FHIR Profiler

Authoring FHIR profiles manually is possible, but the process is overly complicated and time-consuming. A medical business analyst assigned to this task must describe the specification of each resource property, which requires tremendous expertise. But even when an experienced professional executes the profiling, there’s always a high risk of human error.

After medical business analysts, data modelers, and developers raised these issues, several vendors released tools attempting to solve them. Although those tools did simplify some complexities of the profiling process, most of them have critical downsides. For example, users often need to navigate through many screens when authoring profiles and face difficulties when trying to make fundamental changes.

Edenlab’s FHIR engineers developed the Kodjin FHIR Profiler to make management of FHIR resources convenient, fast, and efficient while ensuring the quality of the results. Our tool simplifies profile creation by automating core tasks and allowing users to create a visual resource tree structure. At the same time, the Kodjin FHIR Profiler is highly flexible, allowing precise customization of base resources.

Advantages of the Kodjin FHIR Profiler

Agile editing

The Kodjin FHIR Profiler doesn’t constrain you with predefined forms and fields. You can make any changes needed for your project.

Visualization

The Kodjin FHIR Profiler lets users create visualization trees of FHIR profiles, so you can always see the big picture.

Automation

You need to describe only the parts of a profile that differ from a base resource. The Kodjin FHIR Profiler makes a snapshot of the structure definition automatically and validates it using the Kodjin FHIR Server.

JSON code

There’s no need to learn a new programming language. With the Kodjin FHIR Profiler, you can use JSON code to describe differentials.

Source code control

If you use Git as a version control system, the Kodjin FHIR Profiler, in a version of a plugin for Visual Studio Code, starts running right out of the box.

Can I integrate Kodjin FHIR Profiler with GitHub?

A Visual Studio Code plugin can be integrated with GitHub as a code space.

WHAT IS FHIR PROFILE

The FHIR standard defines a set of modular components called resources, used for the exchange of healthcare data. Patient, Appointment, Diagnostic Report, and Allergy Intolerance are examples of such resources.

Each base resource comprises data elements, attributes, constraints, and relationships that together make up an exchangeable record. For instance, the Patient resource covers all the information about a patient that may be required to support administrative, financial, or clinical aspects of healthcare.

However, the definitions provided by base resources are very generic because they aim to satisfy a wide range of contexts. Meanwhile, different healthcare entities may follow different regulations and practices. FHIR profiling is necessary to customize a base resource for a particular use case.

Simply put, an FHIR profile is a set of constraints that narrow down a list of options provided by a base resource to define how data must be exchanged for a particular business task.
