Catching FHIR RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know if Healthvault will support HL7 FHIR + REST in the future.

    At present I'm researching patient portals and understand I could link Healthvault into the portal and give patients a combined view of a patients healthvault and provider held data. As we're currently working on using HL7 FHIR as the internal canonical data model and creating FHIR facades for other systems, it would be easier if we could go direct via FHIR to healthvault API (and ideally if Apple create their own IOS 8 iHealth, FHIR would be also be prefered API for them also).

  • Hi,

    We're not planning to add native FHIR support to HealthVault in the near-term. I believe FHIR is at least a year away from being proposed to the normative ballot. We do plan on monitoring the standard and if we see significant traction consider adding support. Without native FHIR, you can do a data converter from FHIR to HealthVault's data model, which is a great solution.
