HL7 FHIR: A Paradigm Shift to Facilitate the Exchange of Patient Data

In this content:

  • A standard based on web technologies
  • Technical and architectural Techniques
  • Enovacom solutions are FHIR-compatible
  • The expansion of FHIR

The interoperability standard HL7 format has evolved over the years. To democratise its use and implementation, the format has opened up to current web practices (HTML, XML, JSON). The FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) standard now broadens the field of possibilities with its library of open source resources.

To understand how and why the FHIR standard came into being, Frédéric Laurent, Project Manager at Enovacom, reflects on the origins of this interoperability standard.
