"A solid ontology-based analysis with a rigorous formal mapping for correctness" is one of the ten reasons why the HL7 standard Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) is advertised to be better than other standards for EHR interoperability. In this paper, we aim at contributing to this formal analysis by proposing an RDF representation of a subset of FHIR resources based on a highly constrained top-level ontology and guided by the use of a set of Content Ontology Design Patterns (Content ODPs) for representing clinical information. We exemplify this by reinterpreting FHIR medication resources. Although a manual task now, we foresee a possible automatic translation by using RDF shapes.
