CA web property links
- Digital Transformation in Healthcare ebook landing page
- FHIR API Sandbox landing page
- FHIR API Sandbox SaaS portal
- FHIR Videos: interviews, implementations, best practices. Some CA customers in these interviews. This is a great resource because you can hear directly from people in the healthcare space about the things they’re interested in and the problems they have.
Interesting FHIR software
- C3-Pro. A set of FHIR compliant research software tools for ResearchKit (Apple) & ResearchStack (Google). This is really interesting stuff, because it helps ResearchKit/Stack be able to communicate with FHIR enabled back-ends. CA’s SMART on FHIR support in the MAG SDK is designed a complement to this work.
- Harvard Medical School, HL7 FHIR Applications Roundtable. (presentation, video). Presentation topic: FHIR® presents an opportunity for innovation. As standards, REST, JSON, and OAuth help to break down application silos. These same technologies that have unlocked innovation in the consumer space will enable providers to create secure solutions that improve the patient experience while reducing the cost of care. However companies still have a need for developers to easily explore the FHIR resources at their disposal. They still need a governable way to enable developers to use OAuth easily. They need a platform to quickly deliver solutions with enterprise-class integrity. CA’s API Management solutions for healthcare address these needs and more.

Not necessarily FHIR related, but a good way to get a sense of the priorities in the industry.
A good background article about the current state of FHIR (August 2016). Worth the read to get familiar with the issues and activity around FHIR, and healthcare interoperability and innovation.
Dokchain. An interesting article on the use of blockchain technology to create a better electronic patient record.
Open Forum Health Acceleration Challenge. Harvard Business School & Harvard Medical School have a collaboration to develop interesting applications. There are 5 phases in their evaluation, and they’re moving along narrowing down the 111 applications to the finalists. Each application is evaluated based on 3 criteria: impact, evidence, & dissemination. It’s interesting to see which applications are promoted to each phase, so I’ve linked to the first step where you can view all 111 applications.
Medlio. These guys won a recent hackathon sponsored by Allscripts meant to demonstrate the power of the Meaningful Use Phase 3 (MU3) API requirement. Medlio is a virtual insurance card designed to enable a mobile phone to replace all the hassle surrounding insurance information regarding doctors visits.
Apple. “In the future, I’ll prescribe you an app. One of our whiteboards will drop in and explain what high blood pressure is. The phone will be Bluetoothed to the cap of your pills. I’ll nudge you towards a low salt diet. All of these things will all happen in your phone. I see you two or three days a year. The phone sees you everyday.” Read the whole article, it’s worth it.
