The ability to exchange healthcare information between systems is important to achieve the triple aim – better heath for individuals, better care for populations, and greater cost efficiency in care. In 2012, a new version of the HL7 standard emerged for information exchange: Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®). This webinar will explore how FHIR® facilitates easier exchange of healthcare data between systems in a straightforward yet secure manner.

Keeping the complexity of healthcare data in mind, FHIR® was created with a modern, internet-based approach to connecting different elements. FHIR® builds a base set of resources that satisfy the majority of use cases. In this webinar, you will learn:

• The business case for adopting FHIR®
• Terminology such as “resources”, "profiles", and “data elements”
• How FHIR® supports information exchange
• Current success stories around FHIR®

Webinar participants will have an opportunity to ask FHIR® experts questions regarding implementation and capabilities.
