It is abstractly very similar to CDA, but uses all the more simple Resources and Encoding that FHIR has to offer.

HL7 v2 vs FHIR

I was in a discussion around HL7 v2 vs FHIR lately. The technical merits of FHIR were not being debated. There is really nothing one can do in FHIR that one can't do in HL7 v2. Yet the question persisted, what is the reason why FHIR will win over a more compact solution like HL7 v2? At best there is a small fixed pool of people today that understand HL7 v2; while the need to enable Interoperability in Healthcare is expanding fast.

So far, FHIR Connectathon has been more of a 'hackathon', and that has been exactly what FHIR community needed.
