  • Adopt the HAPI FHIR library for resource creation and validation
  • Support the export of OpenMRS encounter data in the form of FHIR resources
  • Develop OAuth based security to authenticate and authorize requests (FHIR Recomended for the web) 
  • Implement a relevant subset of FHIR specific search parameters that could be used for data retrieval
  • Design
