Opinions Regarding Digital Forms

Hello Everyone!

We’re in the process of incorporating FHIR with our custom digital forms. I was just curious if anyone has attempted this before/what resources would be appropriate. The forms will either be made by the clinic or they are digitized versions of existing forms (ex Ontario Lab Requisition).

Thank you!

Typically forms are represented using Questionnaire and the completed forms using QuestionnaireResponse. However, if you’re only interested in answers and not the design of the form, you might be able to just use Observation. If you’re dealing with scanned images of paper forms or PDFs, you’d use DocumentReference.
