To our HAPI FHIR community, we’re conducting a long-overdue survey to help guide the future development of the platform and look forward to hearing from you.

In the spirit of continuous improvement, we are always working to understand our clients better. In doing so we can ensure you are provided with the best configuration offerings for your needs. By supplying us with your current configuration, it will be kept confidential and analyzed in aggregate to identify common settings. This will help us to provide different modes for various types of runtime environments.

To participate:

  • Download your ‘cdr-config-Master. properties’ file from either the Support tab in the Web Admin Console (for Smile CDR 2021.05.R01 and above) or the Swagger API (for versions prior to 2021.05.R01)
  • Submit a support ticket with the file attached

We look forward to having you join us at Smile CDR’s next release on February 17, 2022, as we work towards our shared vision for better global health.
