FHIR Server Samples
The scenario is meant to illustrate how to connect a web application to the FHIR API. The scenario also illustrates features such as the SMART on FHIR Active Directory Proxy. It can be deployed using the Azure API for FHIR PaaS server:
Or the open source FHIR Server for Azure:
In both cases a storage account will be deploy and in this storage account there is a BLOB container called
fhirimport, patient bundles generated with Synthea can dumped in this storage container and they will be ingested into the FHIR server. The bulk ingestion is performed by an Azure Function.
The environments also optionally include an Azure Data Factory instance, which has export pipelines configured for selected resources. The ADF export pipeline is experimental and not deployed by default. To deploy the ADF pipeline, add the
-DeployAdf $true parameter to the script below.
You can decide which resources to export using the
adfExportResourceTypes template parameter. The pipelines have to be activated manually and will produce a new line delimited json (ndjson) for each resource type. These ndjson files are easily consumed with something like Databricks (Apache-Spark). Please see the analytics folder for some details and example queries. Note that the Databricks environment is not deployed automatically with the sandbox and must be set up separately.
Before deploying the samples scenario make sure that you have
AzureAd powershell modules installed:
Install-Module AzureRm Install-Module AzureAd
To deploy the sample scenario, first clone this git repo and find the deployment scripts folder:
git clone https://github.com/Microsoft/fhir-server-samples cd fhir-server-samples/deploy/scripts
Log into your Azure subscription:
Login-AzureRmAccount -TenantId <AAD Tenant>
Connect to Azure AD with:
Connect-AzureAd -TenantDomain <AAD TenantDomain>
Then deploy the scenario with the Open Source FHIR Server for Azure:
.\Create-FhirServerSamplesEnvironment.ps1 -EnvironmentName <ENVIRONMENTNAME> -UsePaaS $false
or the managed Azure API for FHIR:
.\Create-FhirServerSamplesEnvironment.ps1 -EnvironmentName <ENVIRONMENTNAME> -UsePaaS $true
and to include the ADF pipeline:
.\Create-FhirServerSamplesEnvironment.ps1 -EnvironmentName <ENVIRONMENTNAME> -UsePaaS $true -DeployAdf $true
To delete the senario:
.\Delete-FhirServerSamplesEnvironment.ps1 -EnvironmentName <ENVIRONMENTNAME>
