FHIR

By Gregg Prothero, Senior Director Product Marketing, Edifecs

For more than 20 years, healthcare companies have looked to their partners to build solutions that disrupt and move healthcare technology forward. Standards, such as FHIR (Fast Healthcare Information Resources) and API-enabled web services are the future of a fully connected healthcare system. For example, the spike in interest industry-wide for FHIR is being driven by the high costs of interoperability and lack of pricing standardization among vendors.

To aid in the FHIR implementation, Edifecs has introduced the FHIR Bridge Add-On as a solution that addresses rapid development with minimal training requirements, and for existing Edifecs customers, results in the reduction of the total ownership costs of the Smart Trading platform. This FHIR integration toolkit includes the necessary components for either the novice programmer (as a testing FHIR sandbox) or for the seasoned expert moving a FHIR infrastructure into production.

The tool’s benefits and features include the following:

  • rapid adoption of FHIR standards for organizations with basic or no prior experience;
  • pre-built maps between industry standards (HIPAA, HL7, CCD) and FHIR resources;
  • reference orchestrations for business scenarios, such as quality measures, care coordination, attachments, and others; and
  • FHIR standards database with guidelines for the recent HL7 FHIR standards that allow for building maps, validation, and integration routines.
