The Future of Healthcare Integration

July 15, 2015 Dr. David Hay

The ability to exchange healthcare information between systems in a timely and understandable manner has always been important, and as the volume and type of health-related information increases, it is becoming even more important and difficult to achieve.

Historically, much of this information exchange has been performed using standards developed by HL7®. In 2012, the first version of the new HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) standard emerged, and has attracted enormous interest from the healthcare community as it advances, for its ability to facilitate easier exchange of healthcare data between systems in a straightforward yet secure manner.

FHIR is built around the concept of “resources” – self-describing, discrete chunks of data that “make sense” in the healthcare environment such as patient, condition, procedure, medication, allergy, observation and appointment.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What FHIR is
  • The business drivers behind adopting FHIR
  • What “resources” are
  • How FHIR benefits information exchange
  • What lies ahead as FHIR becomes mainstream

Featured Speakers:

David Hay - Product Strategist for Orion Health

Brian Murphy - HIE Strategies and Technologies Analyst for Chilmark Research
