FSH allows you to define FHIR profiles in a simple, declarative language. No more large JSON files or spreadsheets, just human-readable text files which compile to the FHIR artifacts you need.
Fast and Agile
FSH is amazingly compact, fun to write, and painless to modify when you need to make changes. Take a look at the official FSH specification for more information about how FSH can be used to profile FHIR.
Source control ready
Unlike other tools for profiling FHIR, FSH works seamlessly with source control tools like GitHub. Maintain a history of changes, track contributions, and maintain agility by using FSH with source control.
