FemTech Reminder for InterSystems FHIR Contest


Today in the modern society and fast life, women priorities include not just caring about family and kids, but also building business and career, leaving no time to care about her health and regularly checkups, often not suspecting about developing health issues.

According to research by leading healthcare organizations, early diagnostics and observation may significantly reduce risks of severe women health problems.

Our project helps to solve this problem and allows the user to receive reminders about regular visits to the clinic. We have developed notification system which connects to FHIR data storage, analyses patient's data, and gives a prompt notification to visit a doctor.


This system is a set of components: the server part based on InterSystems IRIS for Health, a cloud-based FHIR server, and two client parts: - telegram bot-reminder and Web GUI. The server part analyses patient's data and send a notification to visit a doctor or to do laboratory examinations via the telegram bot. Administrators use web-based GUI interface to configure recommendations.

Map mind

When brainstorming the solution to apply for this contest, our team came up with the following possible use cases for a female health reminder application, and divided them into three levels: top level (blue) describes actors (WHO?), middle layer (yellow) describes use cases (WHAT?) and third level (pink) describes tasks (HOW?)

How to run

ZPM deployment

You need to install web-server with https (for telegram bot webhook) or implement the necessary access to the local computer through a service such as

  1. Install InterSystems IRIS for Health Community install
  2. Add FEMTECHREMINDER namespace


  1. Add SSL server config for Telegram Bot WebHook and SSL client config




  1. Install a Foundation and HTTP Service for FEMTECHREMINDER

    Management Portal -> Health -> Installer Wizard



Press "Activate" link for activate Foundation

Management Portal -> Health -> Service Registry


  1. Install ZPM

  2. Install FEMTECHREMINDER package by ZPM
zpm "install femtech-reminder"

Docker deployment from github

  1. You should clone this repo
git clone
  1. Open a terminal in this directory and run:
docker compose up

Check points 3, 4, 7 of ZPM Deployment.

To view Production go to:


Setup FHIR Server

  1. Sign up in Cloud Portal on (

  1. Once you confirm your email and log into portal, you will get redirected to Deployments page. Let's click "Create Deployment" button to create deployment.

  1. Select and create FHIR Accelerator Service with default parameters and set the unique name for deployment. (Screen here taken from live cloud portal but actually we have created deployment on test, need to think about right version for it).

  1. Once deployment is created and running, click on it and go to "Data Management" menu, and select "Bundle Operations" tab. This is where we can populate server with sample patient databases. At now we upload and import 'Synthea Population ~50' bundle.

  1. Go to the Credentials page and create new API Key and new Server User credentials and save it for IRIS

  1. Now we have fully set up our FHIR server! Go to the Overview page and at the FHIR Details section will be shown Api Key and OAuth 2.0 Endpoints that we can use next in IRIS for working with requests

Setup telegram-bot

Create telegram-bot:

Open a Telegram messenger, log into your account or create a new one.
