Healthcare Interop Boston Meetup presents:

Healthcare on FHIR: A Review of HL7’s Hottest Healthcare Technology Standard

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) represents an exciting new direction for healthcare interoperability where modern lightweight protocols are used to tame the complex myriad of data and systems that undergird large hospital systems and healthcare information exchanges.

From the HL7 FHIR Overview: “FHIR aims to simplify implementation without sacrificing information integrity. It leverages existing logical and theoretical models to provide a consistent, easy to implement, and rigorous mechanism for exchanging data between healthcare applications.”

With well over 100 Resources currently defined and the adoption of a robust and consistent RESTful communication strategy, FHIR offers the hope of a brighter future where patients, clinicians, and all other stakeholders interact with healthcare information through an ecosystem of mobile, web-based and traditional applications and services.

SMART (Substitutable Medical Apps, Reusable Technology) on FHIR, takes matters even a step further standardizing the authentication, authorization, patient consent and application container and launch strategy allowing healthcare app developers to create and publish powerful modern applications that can be selected from app stores and launched on any number of SMART health information systems.

Come join the third gathering of the Healthcare Interop Boston Meetup group and take a deep dive into HL7’s exciting and briskly emerging FHIR standard from HL7.

This event is open to the public with space limited to 49 attendees.  Pizza and soft drinks will be provided.  RSVP here!
