National Event Management Service - FHIR API



Use this API to publish and subscribe to patient-centric healthcare event messages with the National Events Management Service (NEMS).  This national service is implemented on the NHS Spine.

As a sending system, you can:

publish an event message

As a subscribing system, you can:

create a subscription

read a subscription 

delete a subscription

This API uses a publish-subscribe model - the sending system publishes specific range of healthcare event messages to National Events Management Service (NEMS), and NEMS forwards the events to all subscribed systems via MESH.

NEMS authorises a specific list of system suppliers and health and social care organisations to publish information as events.

For more details, see the Introduction to the National Events Management Service.
