The ONC is currently reviewing the draft Interoperability Roadmap for the post Meaningful Use era. As part of this review, the exchange of health data is being examined closely. While C-CDA exchange has accelerated as a result of meaningful use, there are problems with the current C-CDA, resulting in providers having to sort through too much data and in many cases, increasing rather than decreasing their burden. Discrete data approaches, such as that offered by FHIR, offer the potential to get information in a simpler format and in standardized ways for EHRs to ingest the data. This panel will examine the current development efforts of HL7 FHIR using RESTful Transport.
