Question: #FHIR and Video support

Health Intersections

Question : I have a simple question, does R4 have the capability of storing video type data back into the EHR? And lastly, is there a timeline of when specific EHR vendors will implement this capability into their EHRs? Answer : There’s several parts to this answer: FHIR Support for Video. Yes, the FHIR specification supports the Media Resource. Timeline for EHR support. I haven’t heard anything about existing EHRs supporting video.

Hard #FHIR Safety Problem: Synchronization

Health Intersections

It’s a common thing for implementers to want to do with FHIR: connect to a FHIR server, and make a local copy of the information provided by the server, and then check back occasionally with the server for updates – that is, new resources, or changes to existing resources. (In In fact, it might be argued that this is the thing that FHIR is for, based on actual usage). But EHR vendors cannot review patient applications. FHIR Implementation Safety

Nationwide Health Information Exchange on #FHIR

Healthcare Exchange Standards

Most use of FHIR today is as an API to an organizations health information (EHR). However what is being asked latey is how does one scale FHIR to a nation. What is missing is a similar architecture for HL7 FHIR family of technology. The alternatives are inspired by what is working well in the IHE XD* family, but using FHIR. This might use the HEART standard for authorization, and FHIR apps.

Record Location on FHIR - aka Patient Identity Correlation

Healthcare Exchange Standards

IHE has created a FHIR based Patient identity management system for health information exchanges. It is possible that a formal Merge will be supported, but in FHIR a Merge comes with some downsides. When FHIR is a front-end to a non-FHIR system (e.g. an EHR), the result will likely look like a Merge, in that only the surviving identity will ever be seen from again. Especially if those FHIR Resources have digital signatures on them.

Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) Explained

Perficient

What is FHIR? FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) Specification is a standard for exchanging healthcare information electronically. FHIR aims to simplify implementation without sacrificing information integrity. FHIR is suitable for use in a wide variety of contexts – mobile phone apps, cloud communications, EHR-based data sharing, server communication in large institutional healthcare providers, and much more. Why is FHIR Important?

There is no special magic in the IHE PDQm profile, it is just a FHIR Patient. It can also happen when the API is being served by an EHR, PHR, or other data source. Also see my FHIR Topic

Apple Health app will link to your medical records (thanks to FHIR)

Medicine and Technology

Apple recently announced that its mobile Health app will link to electronic health record (EHR) systems. While companies like Microsoft launched PHR platforms such as HealthVault a number of years ago, most of these PHRs were not linked to EHRs. It seems that we're finally entering an era where advances such the FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) Specification and other interoperability standards will allow patients and providers to link critical health information.
