Originally starting as an application showcase in 2018, the FHIR Apps Competition has become one of the most popular sessions at the AMIA Annual Symposium. From clinical decision support and health information exchange to problem-oriented displays and back-end data exchange, HL7 FHIR is enabling innovation across a whole range of health IT domains.
AMIA and HL7 recently reinvigorated their partnership to emphasize the importance of health data standards in informatics, and engage the AMIA implementer community in leveraging FHIR for research, patient care and education. The competition is intended to highlight the best and most innovative FHIR implementations – if you are planning to attend the Annual Symposium this year, you don’t want to miss it!
