In an empty directory create .ENV file
- Create docker-compose.yml file
Copy content from this file: https://github.com/nhsconnect/careconnect-reference-implementation/blob/master/docker-compose.min.yml
- Run docker pose file
docker-compose up -d
- A small front end should be available on http://localhost:8081/ccri
This is a very basic application that allows a developer to explore the FHIR RESTful API to the database.
- Install pgAdmin PostgreSQL: File Browser

The password is fhirjpa
port number is 5434
Once connected, you will be able to explore the database:
- Install visualisation tools.
I’ve used Download | DBeaver Community
Once installed set up the connection (port 5434, username and password fhirjpa and database careconnect)
Once connected, then select New->Wizard from the menu. Choose ER Diagram from the menu
Then select the tables:
In the diagram above creates a very complicated diagram. In the screenshot below only Patient, Encounter, Observation and Procedure tables have been selected:
