Access Appointment Information

The FHIR Appointment API gives you access to appointment's information for a patient.

Access Control

You have to use the Access Token of an authenticated user with the APPOINTMENT_READ and APPOINTMENT_CREATE permission in the scope to access the FHIR Appointment API. For user authentication, take a look at the Connect Users Guide.

Patient's appointment

Appointment resources are used to provide information about a planned meeting that may be in the future or past. A patient sometimes needs an appointment for pre-admission or consultation.

An Appointment has several fields :

  • start: When the appointment is to take place
  • end: When the appointment is to conclude
  • participant: Participants involved in the appointment (patient, practitioner, healthcare service)
