This is the support API for working with the DSTU version of HL7 FHIR on the Microsoft .NET (dotnet) platform. The API deals with the HTTP and wire format, so you can write code like this to manipulate a patient’s data:
var client = new FhirClient("http://spark.furore.com/fhir"); var pat = client.Read<Patient>("Patient/1"); pat.Resource.Name.Add(HumanName.ForFamily("Kramer") .WithGiven("Ewout")); client.Update<Patient>(pat);
This library provides:
- Class models for working with the FHIR data model using POCO’s
- Xml and Json parsers and serializers
- A REST client for working with FHIR-compliant servers
- Helper classes to work with the specification metadata, most notably
StructureDefinitionand generation of differentials

We actively monitor the issues coming in through the GitHub repository at https://github.com/ewoutkramer/fhir-net-api/issues. You are welcome to register your bugs and feature suggestions there!
For broader discussions, there’s a “FHIR on .NET” Google group.
We are also members of the FHIR Implementers chat.
