The CDS Hooks Testing Tool is an online tool for testing and debugging CDS Hooks flows. It allows you to simulate CDS Hooks requests and FHIR server content and view service responses directly in the browser. It is designed to be used by developers and implementers of CDS Hooks.
CDS Hooks is a standard for invoking clinical decision support (CDS) from within EHR solutions. It defines a hook-based pattern for executing CDS calls returning information and suggestions to the clinician using an EHR. The external service can be any type of service that provides clinical decision support.
The CDS Hooks standard additionally defines a set of hooks that can be invoked at specific points in the EHR workflow, e.g.

The CDS Hooks Testing Tool allows the user to provide the content for the CDS Hooks request and mock FHIR server and view the CDS Hooks service response.
