Hi Charlie - I assume the SemanticWeb-ification of FHIR is still not public?
(Ie I cannot see any reference in the FHIR spec [1])

Even though section 1.1 asserts:

"The resource contents are mapped to solid underlying ontologies and models using computable languages (including RDF) so that the definitions and contents of the resources can be leveraged by computational analysis and conversion processes"
