Burning Questions Answered: FHIR, SMART & the Quest for Interoperability

Nov 20, 2015 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST
Virtual Event

While IT system interoperability has always been a holy grail in healthcare, there is more pressure than ever before to make interoperability a practical reality. The need to manage constantly changing clinical and administrative requirements is driving the successful development and adoption of new standards for running applications and sharing data. In order to move to the next level of care delivery, modern healthcare organizations require a reliable framework for accessing data and presenting contextually aware applications at the point of care that augment and compliment the functionality of the EMR.

In this Webinar, leading voices on interoperability standards will discuss two of the most important emerging standards, FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) and SMART (Substitutable Medical Apps and Reusable Technology).

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Key benefits of adopting FHIR and SMART
  • What lies ahead as FHIR and SMART become mainstream
  • What should organizations being doing today to prepare for the future
