Use actions in bot conversations

This integration lets your users access patient's medical records and fetch/book appointments.

  1. Go to Studio and build a flow based on how you want the bot to take the user through the process.

  2. Include the integration node at the point in the flow where you want to let the user access Epic FHIR info. To accomplish this, navigate to Integrations and select EPIC FHIR.

  1. Once the node gets added, click the node, choose the EPIC FHIR account for that action and choose the action you want to carry out.

  2. Depending on the selected action, the corresponding fields will be shown. Collect this information as input from users by constructing a flow accordingly and store the input in variables. These variables will then be used in this context.

  3. Each Epic FHIR action returns a response as a JSON object or an array. Store that response in a variable and and to extract the required information from the payload pass that variable in a message node to display that response to the end user.
