Health can improve health care quality outcomes enabling health care providers effectively share information apply evidence support care decisions. NIH seeking innovative health solutions, implementing FHIR standard, enable effective patient-centered care coordination, population health management, data science research support. FHIR a standardized of transmitting health data one health information system another through API. API a specified set protocols data standards establish ground rules which information system directly communicates another. Software developers seamlessly connect program another computer through FHIR API transmit electronic health data. FHIR enables exchange many different health data types such clinical information, demographics, billing claims data. special relevance, complementary specification, Substitutable Medical Applications, Reusable Technologies SMART) FHIR, enables third party applications apps) access data electronic health record EHR) systems approved purposes, including research. FHIR also specifies of specific coding systems required interoperability health data. Several Federal health agencies promoting use FHIR EHR systems. 21st Century Cures Act requires a health information technology developer entity allow health information…to accessed, exchanged, used without special effort through use application programming interfaces APIs)… including providing access all data elements a patient's electronic health record.”[1] To implement provision, Department Health Human Services, Office the National Coordinator Health Information Technology ONC) proposed new rule support seamless secure access, exchange, use electronic health information.[2] Specifically, proposed rule calls the health care industry adopt standardized APIs using FHIR standard share patient data.
