Our CTO provides a brief technical overview of the HL7 FHIR Standard, from analysis of HL7 FHIR healthcare informational data model to potential use cases using FHIR APIs and potential limitations you should be aware of when planning to develop using FHIR standard.
FHIR standard simplifies the development process with out of the box healthcare data models, RESTful APIs and robust guidelines for integration with legacy healthcare data standards such as HL7 V2, CCD, and others.
Over the last six years, we have consulted on the development of countless HL7 FHIR enterprise-level healthcare applications. In this post, we share the advantages of incorporating the FHIR standard in your health IT project and strategies to overcome the potential shortcomings effectively.
Digital health company Narus Health build two FHIR applications - a cloud electronic health record and a mobile application - to support employee health. Storing their healthcare data in a backend FHIR server and building with FHIR APIs significantly cut costs and time to market.
Deciding between which healthcare data standard to use can be hard. We evaluated whether HL7 v2, v3 & CDA, or FHIR is the best choice for a laboratory integration project. We found FHIR is the best choice because the FHIR API perfectly compliments the custom API of the laboratory system.
Electronic health records systems have been great at capturing healthcare data, but remain difficult and expensive to customize. The new FHIR standard gives us ways to quickly build flexible, modern health systems at low costs with FHIR servers, FHIR APIs, and FHIR development tools.
Digital health innovation drives patient engagement, lowers costs and improves the quality of care. Having a team of FHIR experts who understand electronic health records systems and know how to manage healthcare data the right way will help open the doors to innovation at your organization.
