How to Import FHIR Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up FHIR data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for FHIR.

Using SQL Server as a backup for critical business data provides an essential safety net against loss. Backing up data to SQL Server enables business users to more easily connect that data with features like reporting, analytics, and more.

This example demonstrates how to use the CData SSIS Tasks for FHIR inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer FHIR data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new FHIR source and SQL Server ADO.NET destination to a new data flow task.

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save FHIR connection properties in a connection manager.

  1. In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. In the Connection Manager type menu, select FHIR. The CData FHIR Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties.

    Set URL to the Service Base URL of the FHIR server. This is the address where the resources are defined in the FHIR server you would like to connect to. Set ConnectionType to a supported connection type. Set ContentType to the format of your documents. Set AuthScheme based on the authentication requirements for your FHIR server.

    Generic, Azure-based, AWS-based, and Google-based FHIR server implementations are supported.

    Sample Service Base URLs

    • Generic: http://my_fhir_server/r4b/
    • Azure:
    • AWS:
    • Google:

    Generic FHIR Instances

    The product supports connections to custom instances of FHIR. Authentication to custom FHIR servers is handled via OAuth (read more about OAuth in the Help documentation. Before you can connect to custom FHIR instances, you must set ConnectionType to Generic.

Configure the FHIR Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract FHIR data.

  1. Double-click the FHIR source to open the source component editor.
  2. In the Connection Manager menu, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. Specify the query to use for the data extraction. For example: SELECT Id, [name-use] FROM Patient WHERE [address-city] = 'New York'
  4. Close the FHIR Source control and connect it to the ADO.NET Destination.

Configure the SQL Server Destination

Follow the steps below to specify the SQL server table to load the FHIR data into.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Destination and add a New Connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "table or view".
  3. In the Table Or View menu, select the table or view to populate.
  4. Configure any properties you wish to on the Mappings screen.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, your database will be populated with FHIR data.
