Our goal is to revolutionise healthcare, so that every individual receives the perfect care for them

Use of FHIR

FHIR (or Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) is the latest standard developed under HL7 which, as the name suggests, aims to make the exchange of healthcare information easier. Very early on, we at Orion Health realised that the technology direction that HL7 was heading in with FHIR was in line with the vision that we had for our products. So instead of inventing yet another standard, we decided that an existing and well supported standard would provide much more value for us, our customers, and our partners.

We are constantly adding more functionality through APIs to our products. Visit the APIs page for a complete list of all our existing FHIR and other APIs. If you can't find what you're looking for, get in touch with us and we'll be happy to talk through what we've got coming up.

Yes. The STU3 FHIR APIs will be made available in our sandbox as soon as they are ready.

API Usage and Pricing

No, there are no costs associated with building apps against the Orion Health API sandbox. You are free to tinker and test your ideas with the sandbox for as long as you want; where costs will come in is when you're ready to take your app into production.

By default each developer account can have up to 5 app instances created. Should you need more than 5, talk to us and we will be happy to help.

We are constantly adding material to the Knowledge Hub with the goal being to make it as useful as possible for anyone wanting to build using our, or any other standards based, health APIs. The Knowledge Hub should be your go-to for any guidelines, best practices, examples, and tutorials.

If you encounter an issue while using the API sandbox you can either contact us using the form in the Contact Us page, or send an email to support.openapi@orionhealth.com.
