FIHR: what are the benefits for the Clinicians

We all agree that making sure the right information is available to clinicians (and others) delivering care to consumers is important in ensuring a high quality – and safe – experience for the consumer. And, increasingly these days we want the consumer to play a more active part in their care – both when unwell and to help them stay well.

But how are we going to achieve this when there are so many different systems that collect and need to share information? How can we create a vibrant ecosystem of applications? A single ‘megasystem’ is certainly not the answer.

In recent years a new healthcare interoperability standard from HL7 has emerged that promises to make this much easier to achieve. Called FHIR, it is already implemented in a number of countries and is the declared interoperability standard for the National EHR project.

In this talk we’ll describe what FHIR is, where it can be used and how easy it is for non-technical people to understand it. We’ll talk about the community that has formed around it involving clinicians as well as implementers, and how you can leverage both the community and FHIR in your own projects.

It is well recognized that successful healthcare projects are those that are clinically led – and FHIR is a key enabler for this.
