Introduction to HealthLake Adapters

Amazon HealthLakeOpens in a new tab is an AWS product that provides a way to store healthcare data as FHIR® resources. InterSystems products are able to retrieve, create, update, and delete resources in a HealthLake data store using business hosts in an interoperability production. Within a production, a business service can use one of the inbound adapters to retrieve resources from HealthLake. In addition, a business operation can use the outbound adapter to interact with HealthLake, for example, to create a new FHIR resource in a data store.

If you are new to interoperability productions, including the use of business services, business operations, and adapters, see Introduction to Interoperability Productions.
