Sorry I didn't respond to this before, but I've been doing some thinking
about the FHIR/HL7 libraries.

With the FHIR code I'm starting to re-evaluate some choices. Before,
there were truly no external python libraries to handle FHIR data
models, or clients, so we had to write them. Now we are in the position
of updating libraries which probably should be hosted/packaged
separately. There is finally a good deal of development in the FHIR
community with good fhir clients/model libraries. The hl7/pdq modules
already do this - using hl7apy - for the parsing/data models. Similarly,
I think I'll start using external libraries when I start updating the
FHIR server more. We can, then, thin out the codebase by removing the
FHIR backend libraries and clean up/remove the fhir pypi packages.

Sorry for long message. =-)

All the best,
