Terminology in Health IT is a very important and complicated aspect. A lot of interoperability depends on how accurately do you encode your data.
Health Samurai team is proud to announce the first stable release of Fhirbase, an open-source tool to store and manage FHIR data in PostgreSQL relational database.
If you are interested in FHIR databases and analytics on FHIR and going to be not far from Baltimore September 29–30 — please join us at the FHIR Connectathon 19 and brand new Storage and Analytics track!
Last week Ryan Brush (author of Bunsen project) from Cerner published on Github the first version of the SQL-on-FHIR draft. This will be a hot topic to discuss in the upcoming FHIR Connectathon #19.
Using FHIR for data persistence is becoming a popular topic of discussion in the community. Our CTO shares his thoughts on when and why you would use FHIR as the storage format for your healthcare data.
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.
Machine learning is getting adoption in healthcare because of the more sophisticated technological solutions that generate a tremendous amount of clinical data. To address this problem FHIR community developed many solutions which we discuss in this post.
We're launching the FHIRbase Dojo, a blog dedicated to sharing the knowledge about practical applications of FHIR standard in the development of modern clinical data storage and analytics applicaitons.
The detailed recap of the first FHIR conference in Eastern Europe, which took place during the summer of 2018. One of the highlights of the conference was the appearance by Grahame Grieve with his lectures about the history of the FHIR standard and the importance of nurturing international HL7 FHIR
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.
We helped HeartSmart develop a machine learning platform that helps with cardiovascular disease detection by processing clinical data in the cloud. This post explains how the new healthcare technology is changing provider workflows, lowering costs, and improving care delivery efficiency.
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.
We presented our Aidbox FHIR backend at the Duke University FHIR Applications Roundtable and explained how using a FHIR server and FHIR APIs to handle healthcare data simplifies development of modern health applications. The event featured speakers who shared their FHIR implementations.
Making sure your healthcare data is secure is a top priority for any health information system. Here’s what you should think about when managing access control for your FHIR server.
The FHIR standard is becoming the de facto way to manage healthcare data. Our CTO explains why FHIR implementations with dynamic languages could provide valuable feedback to the FHIR standard and FHIR community.
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.
Many people are talking about microservies as the preferred approach to structure complex health information systems. But there are overlooked consequences to using microservices over monolithic architectures.
The new ONC Health IT Certification Program is about having electronic health records open up clinical data to third party applications with APIs. The new FHIR standard can enable access to healthcare data with RESTful FHIR APIs.
The HL7 FHIR standard has great potential to change how we handle healthcare data and the industry approach to health informatics. FHIR can help electronic health records and legacy health systems move away from monolithic architectures to becoming open platforms.
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.
Convenient care clinics are becoming a popular way of increasing patient engagement and satisfaction. Our CEO did some personal research on the best ways to design and develop a healthcare information system for Walmart clinics.
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.
