      OS17.02 - FHIR - Sparking Innovation in Health Information Sharing (ID 116)

      David Hay, Orion Health; Auckland/NZ

      • Abstract

      Purpose/Objectives: Care providers need pertinent patient information, at the point of care and not locked into ‘silos of collection’. There’s a need for rapid, secure healthcare interoperability. In response, there is a new standard from HL7 called FHIR or Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, which is now at a level of maturity where clinicians and healthcare executives can begin to fully benefit from. The presentation will cover: -What is FHIR? -Evolution of this new healthcare standard -How profiling can customize FHIR for your organization -Security and how SMART will ensure this -How FHIR will benefit clinicians, executives, implementers and patients -How FHIR APIs will future-proof your organization

      Methodology/Approach: FHIR represents a major standards upgrade that will boost access to health information in Canada. FHIR aims to speed application development and interoperability, plus boost information sharing in healthcare, especially on mobile platforms. FHIR is both a model and an API and promises to make health information easily and securely accessed from any device, anywhere – helping to break down information silos existing in healthcare. For example, a lack of readily available patient health history often forces doctors in emergency departments to make guesses about appropriate medication, when there is no one to speak for the patient. It will support the creation of an “app store” of independently developed mobile applications, because it supports the collection of data via APIs. To secure these applications, the standard ‘SMART’ has been developed to assist with this. SMART defines the use of the widely used OAuth2 authentication standard along with FHIR as the model and API layer to encourage the development of a secure ‘ecosystem’ of data sources, services and applications. It also defines the ‘app launch’ mechanism to allow an EHR to securely launch an external application.

      Finding/Results: FHIR aims to support the following groups: -Clinicians: FHIR provides access to a more complete, higher quality electronic health care record, by being able to include data from traditional sources like laboratory results, as well as evolving sources like genomic information. -Patients: With more applications being targeted at patient engagement, FHIR removes the technical barriers for data from patient engagement apps to be included in clinical systems. -Developers: Familiar tooling and technologies are used. Predefined resources, and APIs allow implementers to focus on the core application functionality. -Healthcare providers: Vendors are committed to FHIR, which increases the range of applications able to be deployed. This should lead to faster deployments, and lower cost interoperability. It supports the ability to develop applications specific to their needs, yet integrate with the clinical information already available.

      Conclusion/Implication/Recommendations: FHIR has captured interest around the world and promises to revolutionize sharing of healthcare information. David has been involved with the formulation of the new FHIR standard from the beginning and is active in the international standards community as the chair of HL7 New Zealand and co-chair of the FHIR Management Group. FHIR represents a major standards upgrade that will boost access to health information and healthcare delivery in Canada.

      140 Character Summary: Learn how the new standard HL7 FHIR will future-proof your organization and enable improved healthcare interoperability with Dr. David Hay.
