Data transfer file formats

Development is advancing and new technology has meant and will probably to a greater extent mean that data is automatically transferred between different systems e.g. medical record systems, PDMS, quality registers and others. Therefore, it is important that we use the same formats and standards so that data transfers from different systems can take place in a smooth way.

XML format (5.2)

SIR has an XML format (5.2) for reporting care occasions developed with international standards. More technical description and some technical tools can be found on the right side of the page.

JSON format (JavaScript Object Notation)

JSON format is a popular and modern data transfer format with clear advantages such as:

  • Simplicity
  • Easier to read
  • Faster to process

Today, through the Nu-get package, developers can easily generate XML, a similar package will also be deployed on for JSON. Otherwise, the existing Nu-get package for SIR.XML will also support the framework. NET6. We expect to have everything ready to be able to support the new JSON format by summer 2022. You will still be able to send files in XML format.

SIR also has a function for automated reporting of the care OPPORTUNITY XML file.
