Why HL7 FHIR standards are important in healthcare products development

We believe that clinic owners should take the efforts made by the developers towards open source FHIR implementations into consideration and think about steps to make in the years to come.
SAN FRANCISCO - March 2, 2023 - PRLog -- A long time ago our gadgets learned to monitor our health and give a signal about a problem if there is any. Synchronization of gadget signals and data on patients' physical history is our immediate future that is intended to simplify the diagnostics and monitoring of changes in the condition of clinics' care recipients.

Currently, many clinics are not only unable to get information from the patient's gadgets but also have information systems of doubtful suitability for use in the near future.

What is in store for HIS users

In all likelihood, currently private clinics do not create mass demand for information exchange between different systems, and the institutions use what they have; and, therefore, little attention is paid to data interchange standards in healthcare.

In many countries unified healthcare information systems are created, into which Healthcare Standards Integration standards are integrated. Interaction with the standards is likely to become mandatory for clinics. Developers are often recommended to stick to HL7. Development and launch of those systems will take place in the years to come. If then the doctor says "Sorry, I do not have access to your electronic card", it is likely to become a total fiasco for private clinics.

Probably, large HIS developers will rewrite their products and provide their users with new versions thereof compatible with health data exchange applications. Clinics that developed their own HIS will have to look for development teams. When the need becomes urgent, the satisfaction will be pricy.
