CARIN IG for Blue Button Test Kit

Test Kit Version: 0.10.0
Maturity: Moderate

The Carin IG for Blue Button Test Kit validates the conformance of server implementation to a specified version of the CARIN IG for Blue Button. Currently, Inferno can test against implementations of these versions of the CARIN IG for Blue Button: v1.1.0, and v2.0.0. This version also includes a test suite targeting the ‘Non-Financial’ proposed changes to the Implementation Guide.

This test kit is built using the Inferno Framework. The Inferno Framework is designed for reuse and aims to make it easier to build test kits for any FHIR-based data exchange.


These tests are intended to allow CARIN IG for Blue Button server implementers to perform checks of their server against CARIN IG for Blue Button requrirements. Future versions of these tests may validate other requirements and may change how these are tested.

The test kit currently tests the following requirements:

  • SMART on FHIR Discovery
  • SMART App Launch Protocol’s standalone launch sequence
  • Support for Capability Statement
  • Support for Must Support Elements
  • Profile Validation
  • Reference Validation
  • Searching on ExplanationofBenefit Resource

See the test descriptions within the test kit for detail on the specific validations performed as part of testing these requirements.
