  • FHIR (Fast Health Interoperability Resources) is designed to enable information exchange to support the provision of healthcare in a wide variety of settings.
  • Pronounced "fire" it is primarily a data formatting and semantic set of standards.



  • Current document exchange is focused on XDS or similar and the bulk of data is image data. There is little impetus to move quickly the HL7 FHIR.

A FHIR Sandbox for InterSystems is now operational. https://www.healthit.gov/techlab/ipg/node/4/submission/2231
