This article will explore the practicalities of using the Ignite APIs to FHIR enable a real-world application. The MTP app is the example that will be used because there is a real need to FHIR enable it and because it is a relatively simple app with only a few inputs.

Importnant Note: Because the FHIR specification is implemented differently and with different coverage by different vendors, the type of triage analysis that appears below is essential for any potential project. If an EMR supports FHIR or even supports a specific FHIR resource that is needed, that does not mean that the field values required for the potential application can actually be retrieved or updated. All such values must be specifically inventoried and verified to be supported and available.
