The REST API Team (Bostjan Lah, Erik Sundvall, Sebastian Iancu, Heath Frankel, Pablo Pazos, and others on the openEHR SEC and elsewhere) have made a 0.9.0 Release of the openEHR ITS (Implementation Technology Specifications) component, in order to make a pre-1.0.0 release of the REST APIs available for wider comment.
This release is intended to be a ‘core basics’ foundation of APIs to build on, and some services like CDS, and more sophisticated querying (e.g. that Erik Sundvall has published in the past) will be added subsequently.
We are aiming to release 1.0.0 at the end of February 2018, at which point the formal process kicks in.
Since we are in Release 0.9.0, the formal PR/CR process is not needed, and you can comment on the openEHR technical mailing list or if you want to raise a Problem Report (PR) you can do so on the PR Jira tracker. If you do this, please set the Component and Affects Version fields appropriately:
Apart from its primary use in programming openEHR applications, the REST API will be the first technical interface via which conformance will be determined for openEHR system components, as shown in this late draft conformance specification.
This work, along with implementation of the Task Planning (clinical workflow) specification promises to make 2018 an interesting year.
