FHIR interfaces to existing systems

Just a quick note about some work that is being done by Robert Worden (HL7 UK) on methodologies and tooling for creating FHIR services against existing back end systems. He has developed a system that uses configuration rather than code to map between the internal structures of the back end system and the FHIR service which is an interesting approach.

More detail here, which has a sample interface, plus links to more documentation. Or, Email Robert directly.
