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 Administration resources include the base data that can be linked with the other modules, such as clinical content, finance, and billing workflow. The Administration resources are:

    • Patient
    • Practioner
    • PractionerRole
    • Encounter
