Project description

“Koppeltaal” (Ducth for “Connect language”) is a technical solution based on the international HL7/FHIR standard. It enables the exchange of e-health interventions. Koppeltaal enables organizations to connect e-health interventions from other providers to their own IT environment. With Koppeltaal organizations can more easily mix and match the best of the available e-health interventions and applications.


This connector acts as an intermediary or adapter between application and framework code and a Koppeltaal server. It is written in the Python programming language.


This Koppeltaal connector was initially developed by Minddistrict Development B.V. for Stichting Koppeltaal.

Setting up for development

Previously buildout was used for setting up the package for development. We now realy on using a virtual env, pip and a requirements file instead.

Quick start:

`sh # inside the Koppeltaal-Python-Connector checkout $ python3.8 -m venv . $ ./bin/pip install -r requirements -e . `


We use the [pytest] framework. The tests should be run against the Koppeltaal edge server, preferrably in a domain sepcifically setup for running the tests.

`sh $ bin/py.test --server=edge `

The –server=edge argument to the test command is the server to connect to when running tests. It is taken from ~/.koppeltaal.cfg. The format of ~/.koppeltaal.cfg looks like this:

` [edge] url = username = PA@PythonAdapterTesting4Edge password = <secret here> domain = PythonAdapterTesting `

The name of the configuration section in the ~/.koppeltaal.cfg file is the name passed to the –server argument.

Note how there’re two webdriver/selenium tests. They require a Firefox “driver” to be available on your system. For MacOS using brew, this can be installed like so:

`sh $ brew install geckodriver `

Tox is used for running the test suites for multiple Python versions including 2.7, 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8. Python 2 compatibility is supported throug [six].

Command line interface

To use the koppeltaal connector command line interface:

`sh $ bin/koppeltaal --help `


The first argument to the koppeltaal script is the server to connect to, for example edge. The username, password and domain can be passed in as arguments or taken from ~/.koppeltaal.cfg.

Metadata / Conformance statement

To retrieve the Conformance statement from the server:

`sh $ bin/koppeltaal [servername] metadata `

Activity definition

To get the activity definition from the server:

`sh $ bin/koppeltaal [servername] activities `


To get a list of messages in the mailbox:

`sh $ bin/koppeltaal [servername] messages `

You can filter on a patient (with –patient), or event (with –event) or status (with –status):

`sh $ bin/koppeltaal [servername] messages --status=New --event=CreateOrUpdateCarePlan `

To get a specific message:

`sh $ bin/koppeltaal [servername] message [message URL or id] `

Python API

Use the following API in your integration code to talk to a Koppeltaal server:


[buildout]: [pytest]: [six]:
