FHIR Enabled Open Source Terminology Service

Apelon, Inc. is adding FHIR terminology services to its open source Distributed Terminology System (DTS), a full-featured terminology management platform. DTS has a rich set of features for authoring and maintaining local vocabularies and accessing externally mandated standards including SNOMED CT, LOINC, ICD-10-CM, RxNorm and many more. The FHIR access layer provides a modular architecture for users to share FHIR compliant vocabulary resources (CodeSystem, ValueSet, ConceptMap). This is an active project that is helping to shape the evolving FHIR Terminology Service specification. A demo server is publically available and we encourage all participants interested in validating or translating data to utilize the service and contact us with any questions.
