FHIR profile

A Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources® (FHIR®) profile is a set of requirements and constraints placed on a resource. It can describe general features the system supports for that resource or information handled or produced according to a specific use case. Often, they include rules about which application programming interface features, terminologies, or resource elements the FHIR profile uses or does not use.

Future state

Future state is a model that integrates the downstream work of informatics, implementation, communication, and evaluation into the guideline or measure development process.
