FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) is a standard for electronically exchanging healthcare information. There is a need to understand it better and promote a wider acceptance by all stakeholders in healthcare.

Benefits of FHIR

  • Open source resource with no restrictions.
  • Supports seamless exchange of information using messages or documents, and service based architectures.
  • XML or JSON can be used as transmission format for the data.
  • A strong focus on implementation – fast and easy to implement (multiple developers have had simple interfaces working in a single day).
  • Independent of any 1 vendor or 1 entity.
  • Open-source FHIR Server called HAPI FHIR that anyone can implement.
