Event Overview

The adoption of HL7 FHIR is rapidly accelerating due to recognition of its benefits in reducing clinician burden, improving the exchange of quality measure data and enabling real-time patient, provider and payer data access. FHIR also provides a path to meet the federal interoperability and patient access rules.

The goals for this event are to:

  • Educate interested parties at CMS and within the health IT community about HL7 FHIR and the FHIR implementation guides (IGs) developed by the Da Vinci Project and the CARIN Alliance and their real-world uses.
  • Support impacted stakeholders as they comply with the CMS and ONC interoperability rules.
  • Engage providers, payers, and partners to join the growing collaborative FHIR community and directly access associated free and open resources.
