Multi-stakeholder initiative aims to use widely accepted health care standard to enable data exchange to streamline translational and clinical research

HL7 recently announced the launch of its newest FHIR Accelerator, Project Vulcan, which seeks to use its widely recognized data exchange standards to help health care researchers more effectively acquire, exchange and use data in translational and clinical research.

The effort, called Vulcan, intends to use a model for collaboration among diverse stakeholders in the translational and clinical research community to define a common set of standards that can be implemented internationally, built on current agreements to use the HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability (FHIR®) standard to facilitate data exchange.

“Improving data sharing can bring significant benefits to medical research, which is often a time-intensive and costly process that unnecessarily delays progress in discovering treatments for medical conditions because researchers are unable to share critical information,” said HL7 International CEO Charles Jaffe, MD, PhD, “Project Vulcan aims to develop common solutions to help partners overcome these challenges.”

 The HL7® FHIR® Connectathon at HL7's 31st Annual Plenary & Working Group Meeting

I don’t know what you were doing on Saturday, September 9, but I was in a San Diego hotel ballroom watching a little history being made.

HL7 held the 16th FHIR Connectathon on September 9 & 10 and it was another great success. Over 200 people happily gathered together at 9:00 am (with lots of coffee) to work in the 19 tracks developing FHIR solutions.

Clinical Research Track

The Clinical Research track, co-sponsored by TransCelerate, filled three large tables. This was a huge jump in participation. We had seven participants at the January Connectathon in San Antonio and two at the May Connectathon in Madrid.
