1upHealth’s Founder & CTO, Ricky Sahu, recently wrote an article for Forbes Technology Council about FHIR® and how it’s changing the way healthcare data is exchanged for the better.
What FHIR Ignites
“FHIR may have started as an interoperability standard, but as more people use it and more users and developers expand its capabilities, it is taking on more and more. As more information becomes more easily available, it can be combined in a variety of unexpected ways. The flexibility and speed of FHIR make it easy to play around to develop new applications.
It makes life significantly easier for patients, who sit between payer and provider in a situation of high friction, complexity and information loss. Full medical records that travel with the patient are essential for providing treatment with full knowledge of preexisting conditions, particularly chronic conditions, which now affect a significant percentage of the adult population. It also enables the easier coordination of the care teams that increasingly are responsible for treating complex and multiple conditions.”
