How FHIR® Is Improving Healthcare Ecosystems - Customer Case Study

Webinar Slides

Healthcare records are increasingly becoming digitized. As patients move around the healthcare ecosystem, their electronic health records must be available, discoverable, and understandable. Further, to support automated clinical decisions and other machine-based processing, the data must also be structured and standardized [1]. This is becoming a matter of interest for institutes such as government agencies and regional bodies, and we are already seeing rules and regulations come into action. For example, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which is a part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) of the United States, has published the “Interoperability and Patient Access final rule (CMS-9115-F)”. This aims to put patients first by giving them access to their health information when they need it most and in a way they can best use it [2].

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) is a next-generation standard framework created by HL7 combining the best features of previous HL7 standards. FHIR® leverages the latest web standards and focuses on ease of implementability.

By attending this webinar, you will learn the primary components of FHIR, discover the architectural principles behind its design, and understand implementation considerations.

During the webinar, we will cover:

  • The basics of FHIR® R4 international standards
  • Various FHIR® resources, the standard level and the way they are organized
  • Guidelines on FHIR® RESTful APIs
  • Open-source FHIR® test servers
  • Implementation considerations
  • FHIR® extensions and representing FHIR® APIs via Open API specification 3.0 and Swagger 2.0
  • How to expose a FHIR® API using the WSO2 Healthcare Integration Platform and WSO2 FHIR® accelerators
