eClinicalWorks Creates Open Interoperability Standards to Exchange Health Data Quickly

eClinicalWorks has developed an Open Interoperability standard (EOI) that leverages FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) to exchange health data. Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) is a healthcare exchange data standard designed as an open, community-driven standard that draws from the most useful features of HL7. This data framework allows data to be read, written, and queried, providing flexibility to be integrated into a Personal Health Record (PHR) and the Electronic Health Records (EHR).

Our Take

FHIR is a simplified data standard that enables developers to access the healthcare data they need to build fast and modern web-based and mobile health solutions with standardized security and log-on protocols. With the EOI application developers are able to use a self-service portal to create an account with the EOI platform. Once approved, a developer can connect to other healthcare organizations and practices that are sharing their API access to the eClinicalWorks EHR. This advancement will allow for more flexibility and innovation for third-party application developers that want to work with clients that are using the eClinicalWorks EHR.
