The eHealth integration toolkits are a collection of integration tools and sample code resources available in both .NET and Java. The sample code and integration tools are used within the eHealth Reference Platform, forming part of the code library for tools and simulators. Access to sample code and the eHealth Reference Platform’s online simulator services is supported by suitable right-to-use licences and terms and conditions regarding the eHealth Reference Platform.

The Healthcare Identifiers Integration Toolkit contains libraries for B2B connectivity to the Healthcare Identifiers service, used to search for IHI, HPI-Is and HPI-Os.

The sample code and integration tools provided here should only be used in conjunction with the Agency’s detailed specifications for clinical documents and national infrastructure and, where appropriate, by working with technical and other connectivity instruction provided by the National Infrastructure Operator. More information can be found in the relevant sections of Implementation Resources.
