While FHIR is indeed a powerful solution that can do much more than previously possible, the question remains as to how we realize its capabilities while utilizing our current HIT system investment. This paper discusses some of the opportunities—and challenges—for several common interoperability standards, including FHIR.
Learning points include:
- How does the promise fit the purpose?
- Interoperability Standards Advisory (ISA) creates the model
- Looking deeper, and ahead
- Making an informed choice
- So where can the FHIR standard fit?
