What is Open Healthcare?
Open Healthcare is the API-first approach within healthcare technology. It’s driven by the new global FHIR protocol. Open Healthcare or OHR (Open Healthcare Registry) allows for increased interoperability of data exchange between information providers, users, and applications. OHR opens a whole new realm of improvements within the medical industry. And it’s needed.
HL7 and FHIR: Times are changing
Healthcare technology is due for an update. For the past four decades the HL7 protocol has supported healthcare providers and insurers with their workflows. It has been the worldwide standard for interoperability between EHR’s (Electronic Health Records). That time is changing. FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) is a new standard set to be adopted within the coming years. And with that new standard it brings about a plethora of opportunities and challenges in healthcare technology.
The most noticeable change of FHIR is to steer healthcare technology towards an API-first approach. Healthcare providers, insurers, and governments will have to update their SAP, EPIC, or NEXUS systems that handle the EHR’s to be compliant with FHIR.
The API-first approach
The API-first approach allows for multiple parties to safely exchange information across platforms. Ultimately benefiting operations, communication, and the patient’s care.
