The HL7® International standard FHIR® is becoming one of the most interesting topics in the healthcare industry. This presentation will discuss why this interest continues to grow. FHIR is an enabler of interoperability. First, a detailed description of FHIR will be presented – what it is and what it does. We will then discuss two other related standards, SMART on FHIR (a standard for APIs using FHIR) and CDS Hooks (a standard enabling Clinical Decision Support). Finally, the presentation will discuss other key activities relating to FHIR and healthcare standard activities including Bulk FHIR, the FHIR Acceleration Program, and new related activities in HL7.
