The OpenUI5-FHIR project connects the worlds of UI5 and FHIR®. Build beautiful and enterprise-ready web applications based on the FHIR® specification.

The world of healthcare is in change. Though being a highly regulated industry, more and more solutions move from on-premise into the cloud due to increasing costs. With this, there is a need to standardize communication between all players in the healthcare ecosystem (hospital, insurances, etc.). The FHIR® protocol, developed by HL7, has the goal to achieve that. To build UI5 applications based on a FHIR® server, there is a need to provide a UI5 library who enables FHIR® for UI5. The OpenUI5-FHIR project provides the sap.fhir UI5 library, which fills this gap. Currently, this library provides the UI5 FHIR Model which handles the communication with a FHIR® server by a central instance, like the ODataModel does it for OData services. The UI5 FHIR Model enables teams to implement fast and full scope UI5 applications based on a FHIR® server. In future, the OpenUI5-FHIR project might be enhanced by further FHIR® specific UI5 artefacts.

The complete documentation can be viewed in our Documentation.


OpenUI5 provides models out of the box, which can be fragmented in client or server-side models.

  • Client-side models: JSON, XML and Resource
  • Server-side models: OData V2, OData V4

Inside the healthcare community there are a few specifications for clinical/medical data. FHIR® is one of them. Furthermore FHIR® provides a query language to access and modify the data.

To develop OpenUI5 applications based on FHIR® servers, there is a need to provide an easy to use way to bind the UI to an model which takes care of creating, reading, updating and deleting the corresponding data in the FHIR® server. This is the reason for the brand new UI5 FHIR Model, which is included in the OpenUI5-FHIR project.


The OpenUI5-FHIR project provides following UI5 artefacts:

  • UI5 FHIR Model: The FHIR® specific UI5 model implementation to bind UI5 controls to content which is provided by a FHIR® server. The model takes care of requesting, creating, updating and removing FHIR® resources. The application developer doesn't have to care about which requests have to be sent to the FHIR® server at which point in time. The UI5 FHIR Model does the job!


The OpenUI5-FHIR project is completely integrated into the world of UI5. That means applications built with the OpenUI5-FHIR libary can be consumed in any modern browser.

The underlaying FHIR® server has to full following requirements:

  • Provide the FHIR® data as JSON
