The NIST FHIR Toolkit is used by developers before and during IHE North American and European Connectathons.  

The FHIR Toolkit is used by participants and monitors during Connectathon week, so participants should prepare by using the tools in their home lab prior to Connectathon.

IHE profiles/actors tested:

The NIST FHIR Toolkit contains tests for these actors:

      • MHD - Mobile access to Health Documents:
        • Document Source 
        • Document Recipient

Test instructions for each actor:

The list of tests and detail test instructions for each actor reside within the toolkit package. 

--> You should perform the tests for the actor(s) and options you have implemented   .e.g. support for Comprehensive metadata vs. Minimal metadata.

Preparatory test list in Gazelle Test Management:

In Gazelle Test Management, your preparatory test list will contain one test per actor you are testing with the FHIR Toolkit.  The naming convention is FHIR_Toolkit_<profile>-<actor>, e.g., FHIR_Toolkit_MHD-Doc_Source.

Because this tool is new, you will not upload any logs as part of preparatory testing.  Instead, you may add a note in the test instance that says, "I have successfully performed testing with the FHIR Toolkit."
