Project: Create web components for FHIR Resources


In 2018 , We changed how we build applications but working on components that provide FHIR components functionality as web components that can be used on the toolkit, radiology and EHR project.

Please review the code from the last summer project here

  1. (code for the web components)

This was the demo application for the web components -

An example of a postposed way to build the components is available here -

A very extensive discussion of the project which is a MUST read is here - Project: Web Components for FHIR Resources

For this summer (2019) you will assemble all the components into a complete application that is replicable of the LibreHealth Toolkit system : see demo here :

To make this complete , you will need to complete building the web components for the following resources orders and OBSERVATIONS

We prefer for you to use Polymer ( but and javascript language of choice can be used including angular and Jquery

Technical Requirements

  1. Javascript
  2. Web components
  3. REST


  1. Please review FHIR, specifically on the FHIR components
  2. Implement components based on the FHIR resources
  3. An example component -, but not on FHIR
  4. Bonus points - Developing the new UI for radiology or EHR using the components developed in 1 and 2

Prerequisite Task

  • Review above documentation and provide a list of components that are missing
  • Pick one of the resources and make a web component

Deliverable At the end of this project, you would have a repository of various web components with their documentation and a complete end to end toolkit app with the FHIR backend

Any starter task for this?

Hi @judywawira, the GSoC 2018 Potential Student and Mentor Meet & Greet page is closed for new replies. I have used polymer lit-element to create an “active status” component

Hey @bolu,

Fixed that link.
