If you have never heard of Medplum Bots, we encourage you to read the intro material in the Bot Guide.

Medplum bots are functions that execute when triggered. They are similar to AWS Lambda functions, and in Medplum we make them easy to write and deploy and trigger with FHIR Subscriptions. For the purpose of the tutorials found in this section, it's important to understand that Bots drive many of the major integrations that you see in Medplum.

The following tutorials will walk through some of the use cases for Bots, to give you a sense of how they can work for you.
