SHR Models

The Standard Health Record (SHR) initiative is working to create a single, high-quality health record for every individual in the United States. For more information, see

This GitHub repository contains ES6 models for representing SHR namespaces and data elements. These models are used in ES6-based SHR importers and exporters for converting SHR definitions between formats or views.

The SHR text definitions and grammar files can be found in the shr_spec repo. As the SHR text format (and content files) are still evolving, so are these models.

Setting Up the Environment

This project has been developed and tested with Node.js 6.6, although other versions may work. After installing Node.js, change to the project directory and npm install the dependencies:

$ npm install

Running the Tests

This project contains unit tests for testing the basic capabilities of the models. To run the tests, execute the following command:

$ npm test

During development, it is often helpful to run tests in watch mode. This launches a process that watches the filesystem for changes to the javascript files and will automatically re-run the tests whenever it detects changes. To run the tests in watch mode, execute the following command:

$ npm run test:watch

Linting the Code

To encourage quality and consistency within the code base, all code should pass eslint without any warnings. Many text editors can be configured to automatically flag eslint violations. We also provide an npm script for running eslint on the project. To run eslint, execute the following command:

$ npm run lint
