Searching your HealthLake data store by using the FHIR REST API operations

HealthLake supports searching your data store by using the REST API operations provided as part of the FHIR standard. In this section, you will find examples of how to make GET and POST requests on multiple different resource types.

Note

For queries that involve Personally identifiable information (PII) or Protected Health Information (PHI) it's recommended to use POST requests. In a POST request, PII or PHI is added as part of the request body and is encrypted in transit.

The FHIR specification supports multiple search parameters types, but HealthLake supports only a subset. To learn more, see HealthLake supported search parameters.
