Yeah, I had difficulty with those endpoints. According to the standard,
they can include single systolic blood pressure measurements, heart
rate, etc. Unfortunately, most of those measurements are stored on the
same row *and* on multiple models (so, there is multi-model column
searches). I tried to disable the support. Sounds like I messed up.

Those ids - labreport-1, lab-93, etc. - were my attempt to handle the
multi-model column support. I thought I pushed a commit to disable it
before the 2.8.1 merge window, but I just checked and I missed it.  I've
disabled all of that, since it didn't work very well.

What's the status code on that?

So... the individual report works, but the searches don't. Hmm...

It should. It's non-intuitive because you have to search against the
identifier parameter. Also, the identifier is considered a token
datatype, so it must match exactly unless you use :text modifier.

As I said before, I've updated the code a lot. Probably pull the latest
code and use that.

hg clone


Go to and get the latest code in
zip/bz2/gz file formats.

You mean like a bulk import? A proteus script is probably a better idea.

Documentation on pypi (and github):

For general standards-compliant interfaces, I may add write-support to
the FHIR server. There is also the HL7 v2 interface which may add
write-support as well.
