I have a question about setting up FHIR conformance. I have noticed based on sandbox configurations Cerner only allows to "Read" and "Write" from the scope standpoint. Pretty much it is "Read" and in few cases "Write" is also available.  
However, if a Cerner client is interested in also allowing "Search" scope for their FHIR server, is that something available? 

Also, when clients get FHIR services do they have full control over Conformance or does Cerner keeps control of the conformance?

We are trying to find out if we can also allow "Search" scope in addition to "Read." or not.

Thanks,
Jon

'Read' covers also searches

Not 100% sure what you mean - the conformance statement describe the server capabilities, that are fixed

Hi Jon!

If you are granted a 'read' scope (eg, patient/Observation.read), that means you can search the resource too. SMART does not define a .search scope. The is one EHR vendor (not Cerner) who has introduced a "search" scope which is separate from read. However, this is not standard and deviates from SMART.


Best,
