Evidence-based medicine: does the quality of the evidence impact patient care?
Creating a FHIR enabled ecosystem for health information sharing. While it’s important for healthcare providers to have patient information available when delivering care, a lot of the information that gets collected is effectively ‘locked’ up in digital silos at the location it was captured.
Making this data more available (where appropriate) could vastly improve the quality and the convenience of health and wellness in several ways:
If we can make this information more widely available in a secure ecosystem of information and services, then we’ll enable innovation similar to what has been seen in other domains like finance and travel. This presentation will discuss how HL7 FHIR – and related standards – can make this happen.
