Data interoperability in the healthcare sector remains a challenge - there are a lot of interoperability standards in this area, yet the goal of seamless systems integration remains elusive. Healthcare is fractal in nature, and the economics tend to favor a silo-ed approach. At the same time, technology does change healthcare: the patient is put in ever more control, Open APIs are in increasing demand, and the use of AI is a necessity going forward. The HL7 FHIR standard is tool which was specifically created to deal with these changes.
Rene Spronk, Trainer, and involved with the FHIR standard since its inception, provides a "TED-like" summary overview of the HL7 FHIR standard from a strategic perspective. He will cover the origins of FHIR, its core components, as well as its benefits and challenges.
Recorded on March 25, 2019, during an HL7 Norway event at eHelse Direktoratet in Oslo.
Rene Spronk is the lead tutor/trainer with Ringholm.com, a European company that offeres HL7/IHE/DICOM training courses.
