Problems creating an EHR with Swagger EHRbase API

Hi, my name is Sofia. I am introducing with EHRbase API and I have problems creating an EHR using PUT.
I am trying to use this code:

{
"archetype_node_id": "openEHR-EHR-EHR_STATUS.generic.v1",
"name": {
  "value": "EHR status"},
"uid": {
  "_type": "OBJECT_VERSION_ID",
  "value": "8849182c-82ad-4088-a07f-48ead4180515::openEHRSys.example.com::1"},
"subject": {
  "_type": "PARTY_SELF"},
"is_queryable": true,
"is_modifiable": true
}

but gives me this error:

{
  "error": "Bad Request",
  "message": "Could not resolve subtype of [simple type, class com.nedap.archie.rm.RMObject]: missing type id property '_type'\n at [Source: REDACTED (`StreamReadFeature.INCLUDE_SOURCE_IN_LOCATION` disabled); line: 1, column: 271]"
}

What can I do to solve this problem?

Hi Sofia,

not sure about the error message in particular, but your payload might not be correct (you are missing the _type information of the EHR_STATUS object). See here for a working example:

{
    "_type": "EHR_STATUS",
    "archetype_node_id": "openEHR-EHR-EHR_STATUS.generic.v1",
    "name": {
        "value": "EHR Status"
    },
    "subject": {
        "external_ref": {
            "id": {
                "_type": "GENERIC_ID",
                "value": "ins01",
                "scheme": "id_scheme"
            },
            "namespace": "examples",
            "type": "PERSON"
        }
    },
    "is_modifiable": true,
    "is_queryable": true
}

When using put, you should also provide the EHR ID as part of the URL like

{{ehrbase-url}}/ehrbase/rest/openehr/v1/ehr/:ehr_id

If you want EHRbase to create an UUID, use POST instead.

Hope this helps

Thanks! Now it works!

My next doubt comes when using POST to create a composition
If I use the code from de OpenEHR Manual:

{
  "archetype_node_id": "openEHR-EHR-COMPOSITION.encounter.v1",
  "name": {
    "value": "Vital Signs"
  },
  "uid": {
    "_type": "OBJECT_VERSION_ID",
    "value": "8849182c-82ad-4088-a07f-48ead4180515::openEHRSys.example.com::1"
  },
  "archetype_details": {
    "archetype_id": {
      "value": "openEHR-EHR-COMPOSITION.encounter.v1"
    },
    "template_id": {
      "value": "Example.v1::c7ec861c-c413-39ff-9965-a198ebf44747"
    },
    "rm_version": "1.0.2"
  },
  "language": {
    "terminology_id": {
      "value": "ISO_639-1"
    },
    "code_string": "en"
  },
  "territory": {
    "terminology_id": {
      "value": "ISO_3166-1"
    },
    "code_string": "NL"
  },
  "category": {
    "value": "event",
    "defining_code": {
      "terminology_id": {
        "value": "openehr"
      },
      "code_string": "433"
    }
  },
  "composer": {
    "_type": "PARTY_IDENTIFIED",
    "external_ref": {
      "id": {
        "_type": "GENERIC_ID",
        "value": "16b74749-e6aa-4945-b760-b42bdc07098a",
        "scheme": "pid"
      },
      "namespace": "openEHRSys.example.com",
      "type": "PERSON"
    },
    "name": "A name"
  },
  "context": {
    "start_time": {
      "value": "2014-11-18T09:50:35.000+01:00"
    },
    "setting": {
      "value": "other care",
      "defining_code": {
        "terminology_id": {
          "value": "openehr"
        },
        "code_string": "238"
      }
    }
  },
  "content": []
}

It gives me another error:

{
  "error": "Internal Server Error",
  "message": "An internal error has occurred. Please contact your administrator."
}

I don’t know how to solve it. How can I solve it?

Another question, once I have created an EHR with the code you gave me, where can I see that info, if I make a GET I see it but if I enter in OpenEMR can I also see it there?

I want to create an EHR with many encounters but I don’t really understand how this works. Do you know other manuals or tutorials that explain how to understand this step by step?

I think the best source is @Sidharth_Ramesh 's YouTube channel with different tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/@medblocks/videos

We also have a small tutorial in the EHRbase documentation, but I admit that this requires an overhaul: openEHR Introduction | EHRbase Docs

The json payload above, representing a composition to be created, is not ready to be used on real systems. It represents roughly a composition, but is invalid as is missing content; and perhaps you also need to create / publish the template that is used. So don’t use example as-is, rather focus on complete flow from to generate real valid content.
In any case Birger’s recommendation are going to help you further.

For your concrete problem, I would recommend the following approach. After uploading the Template, you can let EHRbase create an example for you

GET localhost:8080/ehrbase/rest/openehr/v1/definition/template/adl1.4/Körpergewicht/example?format=FLAT

Replace “Körpergewicht” with your template id. This will give you an example composition like this for the FLAT representation:

{
    "körpergewicht/category|value": "event",
    "körpergewicht/category|code": "433",
    "körpergewicht/category|terminology": "openehr",
    "körpergewicht/context/status|code": "at0010",
    "körpergewicht/context/status|value": "registriert",
    "körpergewicht/context/status|terminology": "local",
    "körpergewicht/context/kategorie:0": "Lorem ipsum",
    "körpergewicht/context/start_time": "2022-02-03T04:05:06",
    "körpergewicht/context/setting|value": "home",
    "körpergewicht/context/setting|terminology": "openehr",
    "körpergewicht/context/setting|code": "225",
    "körpergewicht/context/_end_time": "2022-02-03T04:05:06",
    "körpergewicht/context/_health_care_facility|name": "DOE, John",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/gewicht|magnitude": 500.0,
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/gewicht|unit": "kg",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/time": "2022-02-03T04:05:06",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/width": "PT42H",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/math_function|terminology": "openehr",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/math_function|code": "145",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/math_function|value": "minimum",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/language|terminology": "ISO_639-1",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/language|code": "de",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/encoding|code": "UTF-8",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/encoding|terminology": "IANA_character-sets",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/_work_flow_id|id": "121d020d-0639-3fc3-a3ed-21f2d72eee1f",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/_work_flow_id|id_scheme": "scheme",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/_work_flow_id|namespace": "unknown",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/_work_flow_id|type": "ANY",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/_guideline_id|id": "97063a6d-140c-3bbf-a25b-35ee3c0adeda",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/_guideline_id|id_scheme": "scheme",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/_guideline_id|namespace": "unknown",
    "körpergewicht/körpergewicht/_guideline_id|type": "ANY",
    "körpergewicht/language|code": "de",
    "körpergewicht/language|terminology": "ISO_639-1",
    "körpergewicht/territory|terminology": "ISO_3166-1",
    "körpergewicht/territory|code": "DE",
    "körpergewicht/composer|name": "Max Mustermann"
}

Then you can use the result to create the composition with

POST localhost:8080/ehrbase/rest/openehr/v1/composition?templateId=Körpergewicht&format=FLAT

Hi,
I’m trying to upload a template using POST adl template 1.4 but I don’t know which templates are valid to upload. I want a template to introduce de personal data of a patient such as name, surname, phone address …

Where can I find them and how should I upload them???

Thanks!
