Introduction to HL7, FHIR

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Technological innovations have dramatically changed all the sectors including the healthcare sector. The healthcare landscape is changing from inpatient to outpatient value-based services. With reduced hospital care and improvised services like clinical innovation, patient preferences, incentives, and electronic health records, telemedicine is improved and is in demand.

But are the healthcare providers equipped enough to provide outpatient services?

Are you ready with the technology that backs you to provide your customer services at their convenient time and location?

To provide better healthcare solutions, healthcare services across the world are collaborating for standard resources and API definitions. These APIs share data across the platform and systems in various formats.

 

Insight of FHIR and HL7

HL7 (Health Level 7) is international standards used to provide a framework for exchange, integration, sharing, and retrieval of EHI (Electronic Health Information).  

 

FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources), a combination of STEM and healthcare industry is standards describing data formats and resources that are required to exchange healthcare information.

FHIR is open-sourced and freely available to FHIR health partners. It builds a base set of resources that satisfy major use cases when combined or used by themselves. These exchangeable resources are combined to meet the tailored requirements.

 

How FHIR is making difference?

FHIR is a connector for all parties that need the patient’s data. This helps the healthcare community to make the correct decision for the patients who are not hospitalized or located in the same location. 

Based on Restful, FHIR communicates with systems build on modern technology.

As a web-browser based functionality, its user-friendly,

  1. It’s user-friendly and easy to implement
  2. Readily accessible data to improve the speed of healthcare delivery.
  3. Established the standard and structure for data representation.
  4. Eliminates the paper-based documentation and encourages the digital data exchange, feeding information and workflows
