I am an OpenEMR newbie and was investigating if we can access EMR’s data in an external application through some API. I went through REST related topics in the forum and this is what I understood:

  1. Although OpenEMR’s server code is based on REST architecture, it is not available to external application for accessing data.
  2. Medmaster Pro has been developing REST API which is not merged into main OpenEMR codebase yet. It is a separate experimental code at this moment

If what I understood is correct, do we have any expected timeline when this API will be available as a part of OpenEMR release?
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you and much appreciated


Hi @varindersingh ,

That’s about right. The goal is to pursue an API based on FHIR. Here’s the ongoing discussion of this:

(timeline will be when a developer has time or is sponsored to work on this)
