We are excited to announce a major new version of the world-leading FHIR-native terminology server, Ontoserver®.
Ontoserver is the fastest and most comprehensive FHIR Terminology Server on the market. With more than 75 licensees globally, it provides deep support for SNOMED CT, LOINC, and all FHIR-based CodeSystems.
Ontoserver 6.0 previously introduced support for FHIR R4 with several normative Resources, CodeSystem supplements that allow for third-party annotation of codes and language translations, and a re-architected indexing scheme for faster short-text matching and robust horizontal scaling.
Ontoserver 6.1 now brings significant new features:
- Support for SNOMED CT post coordinated expressions
CodeSystem supplements can be used to maintain expression libraries, and expressions can be included in ValueSets, while the operations $expand, $validate-code, $subsumes, and $closure have been updated to work with the semantics of these expressions.
- Introduction of a fine-grained (Resource instance-level) security model
Through the use of security labels on a Resource instance, read and write permissions can be used to manage access to content. This extends across operations so that, for example, a ValueSet cannot be used to indirectly access the content of a protected CodeSystem.
- Support for operations on Resource.meta
This allows update of profiles, tags and security labels without updating the Resource itself.
