Date & Time:

FHIR® is now well established as an implementation standard of choice for interoperability requirements in healthcare. Globally, HL7® FHIR-based solutions have been developed and piloted for public health, Precision Medicine and genomics, BioPharma and basic research, mobile health and healthcare payers. NHS Digital is working on several FHIR projects, including collaboration with the Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB) and the INTEROPen group to provide clinical validation of FHIR profiles for use in the NHS and social care. Local digital roadmap communities are looking at the opportunities FHIR gives to support regional information sharing needs.
