Conformance in FHIR¶
Conformance Resources (“Profiles”) are an important aspect of the FHIR standard. They allow you to tailor FHIR to your needs and define how exchanging partners use the FHIR specification. Profiles have an international, a national, regional or local scope, or are designed for specific use cases.
Creating and maintaining these files by hand using an XML editor or an Excel sheet is error-prone and requires detailed knowledge of the Profile resource. Forge is the user-friendly editor for creating and editing profiles that enables modelers to create and manage profiles using a graphical user-interface.
