I suggest folks look at the Table of Contents. OPENMRS\Table of Contents - FHIR v4.0.1

@sharif currently the home page makes the docs look blank - if you could embed the TOC or even just a link to the TOC that would be helpful so people don’t leave without noticing there is a ton of content in the Table of Contents and in the Artifact Index.

May I confirm my understanding: So all the documentation found through the TOC/Artifact Index is a live-updating, dynamic one-place that anyone wondering “What does the OpenMRS FHIR API currently support” can use to answer that question. Is that right?

Yes @grace, Thats true, We only included resources we support.

Could there be a reason why you left out these resources?

Sorry I haven’t replied to your above messages Abert & Sharif; I confess the last 2 weeks I was very focused on the GDHF conference that finished last week. FYI I am already finding the FHIR IG really helpful, and I have already been sharing the link to OPENMRS\Artifacts Summary - FHIR v4.0.1 with anyone who needs to review the extent of our current FHIR api coverage. So this is already proving to be a very valuable resource!!

Now the challenge ahead of us is to keep it up-to-date. It’s not clear to me when I look at exactly where to make a PR to edit some of the content. What do you think about adding a section like “How to Update or Contribute to this FHIR IG”, with text like: "Keeping this FHIR IG up-to-date is a community effort. If you have content suggestions or new coverage to document, please make a PR at [GitHub Repo Link?]. If you have questions or a project idea to help continue to grow OpenMRS’ FHIR coverage, let us know on or on the OpenMRS community Slack our FHIR channel at #fhir. "

What do you think?

p.s. - Why not give yourselves a bit more credit by linking to your Case Study page (Case Study: FHIR2 Module Implementation Guide - Resources - OpenMRS Wiki) under Credits and Acknowledgements, perhaps next to the GSOC line item?

Great question from Daniel, especially since we are now using this FHIR IG as our source-of-truth about what the OpenMRS FHIR API covers :wink:

Thank you so much @dkayiwa @grace for checking on those resources, perhaps we could have missed them out. We shall surely include them. cc @abertnamanya .

Yeah, this would be great for the community to have knowledge on how to make contributions to the IG or do corrections where necessary. Let me add it to the menu items.

Thanks, @grace for bringing this up.
