Get Started

Salesforce Healthcare API enables you to securely connect and interact with any system that uses FHIR APIs.

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) is a healthcare data standard with an API for representing and exchanging electronic health records (EHR). FHIR is an information network that lets you link data across systems and a communication network that lets you exchange data between systems.

For more details about FHIR, see the most recently published version of the FHIR specification.

Salesforce Healthcare API includes these resources:

  • The Clinical Summary resources represent core clinical information for a patient. This information is frequently documented, created, or retrieved by healthcare providers during the course of clinical care. The Clinical Summary resources are:

    • AllergyIntolerance
    • Condition
    • Procedure
  • The Medication resources identify and define a medication. Healthcare providers use this information to prescribe, dispense, and administer a medication. They also use it to make statements about medication use.

  • The Patients resource provides demographics and other administrative information about an individual receiving care or other health-related services.

    The Patients resource is not on the same domain as the Clinical Summary and Medication resources so its documentation is in the Health Cloud Developer Guide.

  1. Accept terms and enable access
