Full Title or Meme

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.

Context

Problems

  • 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.
  • Healthcare data for patients has been stored on desparate networks that could not interchange data which left patients without a permanent health record as the moved across the states.

Solutions
