Just a short post for people who may have become frustrated with errors in clinFHIR when selecting patients in the Resource Builder.
What was happening is the clinFHIR keeps a note of all patients who have had resources made for them (by anyone) through the tool – to make it easier to find them later. The list is grouped by server – ie depending on the Data Server you have configured you’ll get the appropriate list.
The issue was that the current servers out there are all test servers – their purpose is to help develop the spec and ensure fitness for purpose, and this means that periodically the contents may be deleted as the resource structure has changed (or for some other purpose). So clinFHIR winds up holding on to some ‘stale’ references – hence the errors.
