A high-level overview of the characteristics of HL7 FHIR, which makes it especially amenable to eHealth interoperability

(well, that’s relative) (that’s what we need) (the web technology bit)

FHIR Manifesto (abridged) • Focus on implementers • Keep common scenarios simple • Leverage existing technologies • Make content freely available If your neighbour ‘s son can’t hack an app with it in a weekend….. you won’t get adopted

“How can I get data from my server to my iOS app?” “How do I connect my applications using cloud storage?” “How can I give record-based standardized access to my PHR?”


Slice & dice your data into “resources” MedicationPrescription Problem

Generic Specific Cover all usecases - (n)ever HL7v3 RIM HL7 CDA C-CCD openEHR RM HL7v2 IHE PDQ FHIR openEHR Archetypes openEHR Templates HL7v3 CMETS

or shorter: “The more re-usable a standard….. …the less usable it is”

+ = Cover the 80% out of the box…

Support “Bottom-up re-use”

What’s Next? • September 2013 Draft Standard for Trial Use Ballot – Coverage of C-CDA contents • January 2014 First Draft Standard for Trial Use ballot (DSTU) – Semi-stable platform for implementers Additional DSTU versions roughly annually to make fixes, introduce new resources • Normative is around 3 years out – We want *lots* of implementation experience before committing to backward compatibility 14
