Using fhir-react UI for quick visualization

The fhir-react project is a React UI framework based on Google Material Design, which covers almost all FHIR resources for versions DSTU2, STU3 and R4.

It design it's really friendly - there's just one component! As FHIR resource types are standards, the framework resolves internally what rendering class must be used.

To display your FHIR resource just write this component:

<FhirResource fhirResource={fhirResource} fhirVersion={fhirVersions.STU3} />

Where fhirResource is a JSON containing any FHIR resource.

In FHIR REST API, there's an operator which grabs all resources from patients: $everything:


This return all sort of resources relate to patient.

So, as fhir-react can handle with almost every FHIR resource, I used it to display resources returned by $everything calls, improving my application patient visualization feature.

First, only resources of type Patient are returned, and each one of them are rendered with a button nearby. When this button is clicked, a $everything call is issued to server. Then, resources are grouped by type and rendered using a tab component.

The results are shown below:
