AMIA2014 Workflow Paper (Monday) SMART on FHIR

(Quotes from 2014 AMIA proceedings that interest me due to workflow-related implications: Take me to my Workflow-Related #AMIA2014 Papers and Posters rationale!)

3:30 Monday

“Kohane and Mandl first proposed the development of “substitutable apps” for healthcare systems in a widely discussed 2009 New England Journal of Medicine article. SMART on FHIR represents a vendor-neutral, standards- based, real-world implementation of that vision in support of an “app store” for healthcare. SMART on FHIR implements an open architecture to support interchangeable Web applications that can be “plugged in” to any compliant EHR or health data container. Clinical data are exposed using an Application Programming Interface (API) defined by Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), an emerging HL7 standard. Semantic data interoperability is achieved using a set of FHIR Profiles that constrain a set of core Resource definitions using a comprehensive opensource library of Clinical Element Models, developed at Intermountain Healthcare. We will demonstrate multiple independently-authored applications running against commercial EHRs as well as other health information technology systems. We will show applications that visualize clinical data, provide decision support, and integrate clinical data with external sources including population health and
HIE data.”
