FHIR is a mature standard, though it is also generic and flexible. Many companies, organizations, and even countries are busy adopting FHIR to their specific domain requirements, national regulations, and other needs.
Typically this adaptation includes the following:
• The content models of the resources
• Chosen terminologies and value sets
• List of API features that should be supported and more
FHIR profiling covers all these needs.
What challenges should you resolve when authoring and implementing FHIR profiles for your solution? What are the best practices and what tooling is available for healthcare engineers and analysts? Is it worth the time of a small healthcare startup, and does it meet the needs of a large healthcare enterprise?
Let’s discuss all these topics and more with our guests!
