It’s surprisingly difficult to find a list of FHIR server providers.

Below are all the server or API providers that I’m familiar with. If I’ve left out or miscategorized any please leave a comment or DM me.

In this instance, self-promotion is recommended. If you’ve built something, tell us about it.

A list like this has real value to organizations and businesses looking to utilize FHIR. But remember, not all FHIR servers are equal!
