FHIRplace is a UI that allows technical users to examine the raw FHIR resources that comprise a patient's ZAP. It is a lightweight alternative to tools such as Postman, or to a CLI.

Getting started with FHIRplace and patient-centric searches

Like the Zus App, FHIRplace has a patient-centric navigation experience. In order to view clinical resources such as encounters, conditions, and observations, you must choose and filter on a specific patient.

  1. To find the patient you want to examine, add a UPID filter

  2. Once you see the patient you're looking for in the patient list, click the filter button next to any one of their records.

  3. You can now use the left-hand pane to navigate to other resource types

  4. Use the "Share" button in the upper-right-hand corner to share individual resources with other users

  5. To clear the current filter, click the X next to the patient's name in the upper-left corner

If you don't have a UPID handy but do know the id of the resource you want to view, you can use the "Go to:" feature in the upper nav bar.

Other useful features

You can use FHIRplace to:

  • View multiple versions of a patient. To do this, navigate to the resource you want to examine and clear the UPID filter in the upper left-hand corner. You should now be able to use the Version History tab to navigate to and compare different versions of a resource.

  • Trace CommonWell or Carequality resources to the raw CCDAs from which they were extracted. To do this, click on the Provenance History tab on any resource ingested by a Zus connector.

  • Compare multiple resources by selecting them from the resource list and clicking on the Compare button.
