I am trying to build a webapp in PHP that implements HL7's standards. Then I came across FHIR. I do not have alot of experience with API's, though I do have some with some PHP frameworks.
When FHIR's documentation says it is a framework standard, does this mean it is not a framework in itself? I also read in the documentation that it provides a RESTful API. Though as a newbie in this kind of thing, I find myself a bit lost on where to start. But I still want to use FHIR, and implement it using PHP.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help and give me some insight on this.
